Did you guys ever wonder what the hell am i doing in the internet and why am i keep on developing applications, Well.. it all started way back year 1997 when I was 12 years old. A friend of mine, shared one of his IT books and source code to me but I really don’t have any idea what language is that.
So i was a curious and studied it carefully until I was hooked to computer language and exposed to C language as the start of my programming language.
Later on, when I was in high school, my generous parents buy me a computer set because they noticed that I always go home late.
I usually hang out at an internet cafes and doing some research about artificial intelligence & software technology. How does a software or website is being made, etc. A lot of questions in my head and I keep on figuring it out on my own.
When I entered college, I really wanted to develop a website for our band. That’s when I meet Mr. PHP and other web technologies. Through my passion and perseverance, I was able to create one, which is my first self project, through a free hosted website as times were hard when you’re still a student.
After I graduated from college, I was employed twice which helped me a lot in exploring my knowledge in programming.
Later on, after experiencing the corporate side, I decided to go solo. I end up doing a freelance job which further enhance my skills and abilities.
Doing freelance is way far from having a full-time office job. I have the freedom from my time, finances, exploring other technologies.
With my experience as a freelancer, I was able to strengthen my knowledge with Open Source Technologies and become part of different Open Source Community. I love sharing my knowledge to those who need it. That’s how I became so popular over the net and now a so called a Futurist Rockstar.
Right now, I am managing my own companies, Imashups for web technology services and Zeenoh for game development.
I am looking forward that my companies would grow in the next 2 years so that I will be able to fulfill my hopes and dreams in helping my fellow Filipinos improve their lives by strengthening their knowledge, generate jobs on IT Industry, showcase our talents on creative industry to the world & invest to filipino technology companies as an angel investor.
Some of my quotes:
“I believe that, we mold our future in our present time and not based from the past.”
“My drive for opensource technology is because of what I’ve learn from my mentors. I owe them so much, and in return I will share it to everyone who need it by sharing my knowledge and experiences.”
