Hi, my name is Harold Javier. I am an independent (freelance) Microsoft .NET developer, trainer, consultant, and resource speaker from the Philippines.
My primary work day consists of writing source codes, designing .NET applications, reviewing peer's codes, blogging, consulting, teaching, mentoring, and training IT students and professionals, and giving talks and seminars to schools and colleges. I also maintain a blog called "dotNet From Manila", where I share my experiences and solutions to some common problems we experience as Microsoft .NET developer. I live in Las Piñas City, Philippines with my lovely wife, Lany, together with our pretty and smart daughter, Helen.
Microsoft .NET Developer
As Microsoft .NET developer, I had a privilege to develop several web applications such as a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, a Logistics Management System (LMS), an intranet monitoring system for a BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) company, an online sales inventory for an international beauty products distributor, an intranet accounting system for a cooperative, an online review portal for a nursing review center, and several websites for online classified ads and real estate.
Microsoft .NET Trainer
I have more than a decade of combined teaching and training experiences in the field of Information Technology (IT) and Mathematics. I used to teach at some top-notch IT and engineering schools in the Philippines like Mapua Institute of Technology (MIT) and AMA Computer. I gave trainings & seminars in some leading colleges such as Technological Institute of the Philippines (TIP), Mapua School of IT, DFCAIT Training Institute, several AMA Colleges, and Guagua National Colleges in Pampanga.
Today, I conduct trainings, workshops, and seminars on topics about Microsoft ASP.NET WebForm, ASP.NET MVC, C#, LINQ, and HTML5.
For the majority of my software and web development career, I have worked for myself. I founded a company called MITXpress Solutions in 2007. At first, my company was involved in developing web applications using ASP.NET, C#, and VB.NET for numerous small to medium-sized businesses.
In 2008, my business became a legal entity involved in the retail business selling various computer-related products and networking devices.
In 2009, I went bankrupt and decided to shutdown the retail business operation and decided to go back to one of my passion: teaching.
From 2010 to 2011, while holding a position as trainer in a government-owned IT school, I accepted a couple of .NET projects as sideline for additional income.
In 2012, I got a contract to develop a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software for a BPO company in Quezon City, Philippines. I assembled a team of .NET developers and led them in developing the CRM that we called SMARTCRM literally from scratch.
In 2013, just 2 months since we launched the software, the said BPO company became an accredited software development partner of Bayan Telecommunications, Inc. (BayanTel).
In 2014, I got another contract to develop a Logistics Management System (LMS) software, that we called JuanLogistics, for an International Freight & Cargo services company in Pasay City, Philippines. My team developed the LMS, a .NET-based intranet application from the ground up.
Today, I am looking for an opportunity to help another organization, company, or individual in developing a software either for business or for personal purposes. If you need my software development services or you are in-need of my expertise, I can be reached at 0915 636 8736.
I was one of the pioneers of the UNV-Cisco ICT Program in the Philippines (sponsored by Cisco Systems, Inc.). My mission was to promote the value of ICT in our country through the use of ICT Learning Program and to collaborate with other agencies in eliminating issues of gender equality in IT. This great experience helped me to truly understand how to fill the gap between the industry requirements and the academia in terms of relevant training. And it made me realize how much both our students and professionals need proper trainings from someone with valuable experiences from both the academe and the real world.
Soon-To-Be Microsoft MVP
I believe there's nothing wrong for dreaming big. Being a soon-to-be gives me more energy to become a better contributor in the field of Information Technology and in our community.
