UP Information Technology Development Center - Dec - Feb 2014
After almost 3 years of working in Singapore, I felt the need to go back in industry based learning again and get certificates for it. I believe that learning does not stop and the more we know, the more we need to know. I have enrolled in short course in University of the Philippines to refreshes the advance Object Oriented Programming principles. After 7 weeks of training, the effort paid off and I was able to get the certificate and feel good about the accomplishment.
ACE IT Learning Institute - Aug. - Sep. 2009
To get additional knowledge on the formal side of programming, I have enrolled in a short course called PHP-MySQL training. From doing self-learning via online resources, I get to know actual people in the field that practices PHP as their programming language. I learned also from the training the basics of the LAMP stack and how it works. The training was a great leap for me to know more about the career I am taking at that time.
Universidad de Manila - Graduated April 2006
It has been a decade now since I graduated in my tertiary education with the Degree of Mass Communication. This education taught me to communicate well and be well understood by the people I meet. During my tertiary days, I got interested in web technologies and become fascinated of what it can do. I have self-studied web development on my free time in which youtube and google became my best friends. I did not thought that from simple personal html page could be the start of a career for me and the rest is history.
