Q: It says in your present resume that you're teaching. Are you still open to doing web development projects?
I'm loving my day-job, man! I think teaching is my real calling. Not to say that I ain't into Web development -- far from it, I'm still head-over-heels for programming and the Web. I'm just trying to cut out on doing too much commercial work right now. So, it depends on what kind of web development job you're proposing. If it's challenging enough (ASP.NET, JSP, but no designing work, please), or pays me in five digits, and if it's PURELY development (no hassle having to go approach clients to get their requirements or anything), then yeah, I'll think about it. Otherwise, I'm just gonna go on teaching and tutoring and taking my master degree in MIS at the mo. Cool?
Q: Could you provide me with a larger snapshot of your project?
It depends. Some of the project snapshots contain confidential information; a few are incomplete projects containing designs that I might re-use for other potential projects. Therefore, I'm sorry I can't show you more details on them, except if you pay me to. I try to put up as much samples as I can, or you can always visit their respective live web sites.
Q: Do you have a demo site where I can play around with the apps that you build?
Look out for project descriptions that have View links or URL. They will probably point to a live site, a demo site, or just snapshots. The ones you might have fun with are the Courseware web site, the Wheel of Fortune, and the Sales & Order System. Screw with them any way you want. I've got a few more demo sites up my sleeve, most of them are either Flash-based or ASP-driven sites. Until they're on-line, though, keep your pants up.
Q: Years of experience in web development, and these are the only projects you can show me? You've got to be kidding.
Embarrassing, isn't it?
Yes, I am kidding. OK, here's the story. In my previous employment, I not only deal in development, but also in managing my team, the customer and provide internal support. As much as I love web development, over the years more of my time were spent managing my web team rather than developing applications. That, and a change in focus by my previous employer, resulted in me doing what I do now. At least 90% of the projects you see here are the result of my freelance work. I also sell computers, provide computer training, do housework, take care of my little rugrat... it's not that I'm idling my way around -- I do as much as I can, with the opportunities I get.
Q: How often do you update this portfolio?
At least once every four months.
Q: Your portfolio appears incomplete.
OK, that is not a question. But hey, I'm open to critiques and suggestions, so start tapping on your keyboard and send me an e-mail (check out the address in my Resume).
Q: Can I have the source code to one of your projects?
Q: Can I buy the source code to one of your projects?
Q: I have a question that's not related to your portfolio.
Oh, you do?
