My Full Background

From 2011 to 2018

I graduated in 2011 and immediately worked as a lecturer for my college, Informatics International. I was asked to cover a range of subjects that cover Full Stack Development: from back end database development connecting that to a front end application that's either a Desktop App or a Web App.

I got to teach students and in return hone my skills in software development. In a way, the students acted as BA's for me. For example, in an activity where we are working with chatboxes, students would ask for features such as adding files to the chatbox, adding stickers, and how we're supposed to save the stickers to the back end! (hint: we use a placeholder string for that)

After years of teaching, I felt that I now had the skills and I wanted to try them in the industry. I started by working in a Construction Company: ASEC Development and Construction Corporation. here, I served as a Company Programmer. I wrote and maintained software that the owner required of me. My greatest achievement here would be my Human Resource Information System that calculated around 5000+ worker's salary each week, reducing the work that had to be done by 4 people in a span of 5 days to just 1 person in a day! This was written in VB.NET connected to SQL Server.

I served the company for three years, afterwards I had the opportunity to work for Asian Terminals Incorporated Here, I was able to develop their Webtrack, a software that I wrote this in C#, making use of ASP.NET and SQL Server as Back end.

While working with these companies, I also wrote side projects for time to time.

I developed the website for Bunny Jeans PH (they have since updated the website)

I also developed a Point-of-Sale application for the restaurant department for Fiesta Technologies

Time would come that we had to migrate to Canada. And for experience I started working as a QA Analyst/Automation Developer for Just Energy, CA Here I created Tasks and Test Cases that verified User Stories, Bugs and Support Requests. I wrote Issues for any test failures. I also have my first experience with both Microsoft Azure and Amazon Webservices here, as our applications run in the cloud.

I was also able to automate our testing of the JEM App, an IOS App that our field agents use to conduct sales and our tesing of the JEOS Web App, a site for enrollment and renewals for new customers this was written in NodeJS

I am currently developing applications with NodeJS with Express.js as webserver and Amazon Lightsail with an Ubuntu Implementation that runs my services.
