Hi! I'm Ino Monares, a 28 y/o all-around handyman, an aspiring amateur cook and a professional Online Software Developer that has been up and around the web.
There are a few things that I dont like and a hundred things I want to try. Let me start, by trying my hardest to express each and every idea that's inside my head - so I created this blog - in order for me to accomplish that and at the same time impart my knowledge to those seeking it. I'm not boasting that I know a lot and I know more than you, but humor me when I say that there are a dozen abstract things in my head that I want to make tangile.
I finished my degree of Information Technology when I was in Saint Louis University, Baguio City, Philippines. I learned the IoT, Systems Analysis, Desktop/Java Programming, Networking and I.T. Project Management. It has served me well as foundation for my work these past 7 years, where I've delved deep into online software programming. A sidenote, I like eating anything that doesnt involve repeating tastes - actually, I can eat a bar of dark chocolate after kimchi. I enjoy offline desktop games, MMO games, mobile games, and the usual pun~tastic exchanges. *heh*
Professionally, my specialty is PHP programming and I work with websites using Symfony (version 1.x / 2.x), Silex, WordPress, TYPO3, CMS Made Simple, Yii, Bolt.cm. I love creating dynamic and interactive applications that is why I am adding my skill set of being a graphics designer - which is a fun thing to start, I love playing with Photoshop and learning CorelDraw. I've been behind the backend of every application for far too long, that's why I long to be in the lead of design and this will be my platform to hone my skills in that department.
I've been eyeing new frontiers, such as Mobile Software Development - specially Android - which I've been introduced since my university days. But i'll be putting that on the back of my mind for now, until I've perfected by UI/UX design chops. I've got a load of mobile app ideas that are itching to jump from my brain and unto your devices, so 'till then I'll be making my headway first unto CorelDRAW and Photoshop.
I also run MonaresWorks.Online, it's a software development entity that I am building-up right now. It will focus on my professional endeavors as this site will focus on my personal preferences.
So, join me online and always be on the look-out for new things here and around the web.
