Software and Web Development Experiences

As Microsoft .NET developer, I had a privilege to develop web applications for numerous clients in the Philippines. I usually develop a web application from the ground up. I had experience developing the following software or web application literally from scratch:

  • Loan Monitoring System
  • Logistics Management System (LMS)
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) System
  • Online Review Portal
  • Online Sales Inventory Monitoring System
  • Cooperative Loan and Accounting System
  • BPO Monitoring System
  • Tens of websites for classified ads and real estate

Training Experiences

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.


Entrepreneurial Experiences

For the majority of my software and web development career, I have worked for myself. I founded my first business venture, MITXpress Solutions, in 2007. At first, my business was involved in developing web applications using ASP.NET, C#, and VB.NET for a couple of small to medium-sized businesses.

In 2008, MITXpress Solutions was registered with DTI and became involved in the retail business selling various computer-related products and networking devices.

In 2009, MITXpress Solutions went bankrupt and I decided to shutdown the retail business operation and decided to work as a freelance trainer and software developer.

From 2010 to 2011, I had a couple of web application projects in the Philippines and in Singapore.

In 2012, I established a partnership with a BPO company in Quezon City, Philippines and I developed a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software called SMARTCRM.

In 2013, just 2 months since we launched the software, we got a "lifetime" accreditation as software development partner of Bayan Telecommunications, Inc. (BayanTel).

In 2014, I got an opportunity to develop a Logistics Management System (LMS) software, that we later 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.

Since July 2015, I've been providing consulting services to Agricultural Guarantee Fund Pool (AGFP), a government entity that provides guarantee coverage to unsecured loans of small farmers and fisherfolk in the Philippines. I also started developing a web application program to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of its Management Information System (MIS) using Microsoft .NET technologies (ASP.NET and C#) and Microsoft SQL Server database as backend.


Volunteerism

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.


Educational Background

My education has been comprised of both classroom experiences through top engineering school, as well as through trainings, seminars and conferences. I graduated with Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) from Mapua Institute of Technology (MIT) in Manila City, Philippines in 2002. I am a licensed Electronics and Communications Engineer and one of the pioneers of Cisco Networking Academy Program (CNAP) at MIT in year 2000.
