About Me

I'm a self-taught web developer. I discovered a passion for programming in my childhood and have continued to develop this skill to this day. It is my main source of income but rarely a job. Love to work in teams, face challenging problems and feel that I am making a difference. Always looking for opportunities to grow and progress. Besides software, my hobbies include squash, fitness and nights on the town.

Education

Software Engineering/Web Development

Ongoing

Self-taught

I've been developing software for nearly 7 years now. All of what I have learned is self-taught from various resources such as books, online, personal and professional experience. I believe that software engineering is such a diverse and rapidly evolving field that, to be proficient, one must continually learn and grow throughout their career.

University of Melbourne

Currently undertaking part-time studies at the University of Melbourne. This is auxiliary to software and is pursued as a hobby.

Projects

DMS

The DMS is a next-generation CMS and application framework developed for PHP7. This project was borne out the struggle of the agency workload where every project has unique requirements that would conflict with many of the existing CMS platforms. Inspired from concepts of DDD and SOLID software design, the DMS has been a sound platform for developing a variety of applications including E-Commerce, SAS and more.
