How I continuously build my own search engine unintentionally

Way back when I was still in school and internet is pretty strange to me, I often keep on browsing one website to the other just to get the hang of it. In the process I noticed one weird  thing- the  ‘Email Newsletters’ sign up section. I was asking myself who in the world would want to receive emails from websites. To me there seems to be no value in subscribing that’s why it felt weird. At that time I perceived email as a medium in sending homework or a prerequisite to access content in some websites. I rarely use it for anything else. And I thought that was it.

Doing an IAmA on Wiselike

For those who are certified redditors you probably know what IAmA is about. Those who aren’t might be wondering what in the world is this blog title about. IamA is sub thread on reddit.com where in someone who is an “I am a (doctor,engineer,flight attendant, etc…)” answers questions posted my redditors. In simple words it’s just a Q&A session.

I came across on Wiselike few weeks ago and tried it out. It is basically a Q&A website mostly for professionals and students. read more…

UNITE 2016 – Unifying IT Enthusiasts

On January 15, 2016 high school and college students from different parts of Quezon gathered in the annual Quezon Provincial I.T Seminar which is called UNITE 2016 hosted by my alma mater the Computer Science department of Sacred Heart College of Lucena. It was my honor to be part of this event once more but this time with a different role.

Almost nearly 3 years ago when I was still in my 4th year in college I was the one so busy doing all preparations which was then called UNITE 2013.  I was one of those students who wore an organizer shirt and can be seen going back and forth inside the venue. It was crazy and exhausting but fun. Who would have thought that the next time I came back I would be speaking in front of over 1000 students (*cringe).

Mobile Development and Versioning – Presentation

Download presentation here

Today I did a presentation about mobile development and versioning to a number of students. It feels great to be able to share what I’ve learn and experienced over the years. Just the thought of having an opportunity to help them, better inspire them, is exceptional. It is something I wish I got when I was still in college. That is actually the main reason I accepted the invitation, no second guessing or doubts.

It started out awful: How my first webpage looks like

This is definitely a throwback Thursday post.

Earlier, I was browsing on my old files looking for a logo I made few years back when I came across to the first website I created back in 2009. To be honest, I’m sure I had made one before this but I don’t have it anymore so it’s safe to say that this is pretty much the oldest website I had archived. I know that I can’t write this without showing you how it actually looks like. So with pride and glory I present to you… read more…
