I am a web developer exploring new and exciting things to do on the web. Apart from current job responsibilities, I may endeavor into adventuring, time-wasting projects like UPLOADnSELL (that I sold to Slashes and Dots) and perhaps simple scripts like Simple IPN and PHP-JS-Countdown (both can be found at MiniSiteGallery.com). Some of my development skills includes: - PHP and MySQL - jQuery, Ajax and JSON - Deploying web app on the Cloud (AWS) - HTML and CSS - Photoshop Right now taking up new skills like Agile Method, Scrums, Ruby on Rails and MongoDB. I like talking about programming and web development.
