Publications

Around 2010 I started up a blog, Loading-Info, where I posted tech-related articles. It’s still live but since I went serious with web dev’t, my blogging activities dropped. Even so, it was my headstart on gaining interest in web development. (Who would believe it got me my first job?) The blogging community is a very interesting market - I met interesting people and was introduced to a wide range of topics and niche.

Here are some of the articles I scattered around the interwebs:

Interests

Aside from web technologies, I am very interested in forensic science specializing in computer forensics, anything about InfoSec, the maker culture, the Internet of Things, and MOOC. If I’m not tinkering stuff on the internet, you can catch me watching video lectures on Coursera, PluralSight, or Udacity.

Let’s talk about our fandom!
