I grew up in Manila, capital of the Philippines and one of the most crowded cities today. I liked and enjoyed music and sports growing up. Not to mention, I was fond of playing computer games such as Diablo 2 (PC) and Final Fantasy 7 (PS1). When I reached highschool, we had basic computer classes where I was exposed to C on 3rd year and visual basic on 4th year. Later on, I took electronics engineering in college where there were a few minor courses on coding in C, assembly language and became exposed in mathematical algorithms. Eventually, I didn’t find a lot of interest in hardware and landed a job as programmer in an R&D firm where I coded using TCL/Tk to automate electronic circuit routing and simulation. As I started getting exposed to front end development, I decided to look for a better offer due to financial woes. I then became a systems integrator for a B2B company which is kind of clerical work. That was the turning point in my career where I decided to take coding seriously by attending a Java bootcamp. I enjoyed it a lot at that time and fortunately, landed a junior position after one (1) year of applying to multiple tech companies. After 5 years doing Java and Spring, I became a consultant for one of the biggest IT consulting firms in India.
Since 2018, I have been deciding to build a project that can generate revenue but it was always put off due to life instances and family priorities. Year 2020 was when I came across Indiehackers. And now, I am trying to build my first MVP for dailynewsound by reading about the stories on how to create profitable side income-generating businesses while balancing work and family. Join me as I am trying to make this journey available to the public!
Side note I like WordPress; the images render so fast, it’s easy to use. The user experience is top-notch and there are a lot of improvements since I started.
