“Work WITH your boss,” that is by far the best career advice I can give to anyone wanting to enjoy and make the most out of their jobs. I’ve seen brilliant individuals quit their jobs and jeopardise their careers because of huge and unnecessary self-induced stress because they’ve been working FOR their bosses. Do not … Continue reading Work WITH Your Boss
On the 21st of June 2020, I will be celebrating my 10th year in the IT industry. If you just met me and that happened outside the workplace, there’s a chance that you would find that mind-blowing. Not a lot of people can really identify me as a tech guy until I start talking about technology. People don’t normally get that vibe and I have a myriad of other interests I can talk about. But yes, I am a tech guy. And now that you know that, the next thing you might want to know is what I actually do.
For the most part of my career, I told people I was a software developer and, unless they did not understand the title, that was usually enough for them to imagine what I do. But the truth is software development had always been just one of the things I do…

Not too long ago, I created a business plan for a new software product development company.

"What's that one thing you wish your customers know?" is a question that's been asked many many … Continue reading That One Thing Every Software Engineer Wanted Their Customers to Know

No, I'm not one of those startup founders trying to convince the world and myself that I made an excellent decision. Maybe not yet. I am one of those consultants working for one. Last November 25, 2014 I celebrated my first year in the startup I joined after I thought that maybe the corporate world … Continue reading In Retrospect: My First Year in a Tech Startup
For a glimpse of one of the most awesome projects I worked on, I am reblogging this special review.
I watched the movie with my nephew. He requested for it. Right from the moment I saw its trailer in one of those movie dates I had, I knew it was going to be cool. I’m a creative working in the tech industry; inventions fascinate me. I thought that was it, that it’s the only thing that will make it appreciable for me. But I was surprised.
It will get a bit nerdy from here. Brace yourself if you have to.
The movie brought me back to my college days when I was working with my dissertation. I worked on a system that taught and implemented feed-forward artificial neural networks (ANN). The goal was way beyond providing a tutorial on ANN. I just had to include it because nobody was buying the idea that the system was capable of simulating human decision-making albeit imperfect.

Wall Scrabble by Restoration Hardware http://hiconsumption.com/2014/11/wall-scrabble-by-restoration-hardware/ I suck at "competitive" scrabble.
