Software Development Skills:
- Back-end: Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Redis.
- I am able to work at all parts of the Rails stack and I am familiar with most design patterns.
- I shipped 5 apps when I was at my last company. I have 4 years of software development experience.
- I also worked as a web developer/designer when I was in college for our startup, I Can Pass Anything!. It’s the biggest accounting review website in the Philippines, with over 50K+ accounts.
- I am familiar with most web development features, including, but not limited to: admin panels, connecting to external APIs, scrapers, jobs, notifications, and logging.
- I can code with or without Rails. I’ve created gems to connect to external APIs before.
- Emphasis on architecture and testing: feel free to look at the back-end of my current project, Daryllxd, an app I’m writing to help me keep track of my life.
- While I have not worked on a high-traffic app, I have experience in detecting/lowering page load time for my previous projects.
- Front-end: AngularJS/ReactJS.
- I have worked in the front-end since JQuery. I’ve also worked with Angular in one of my previous projects.
- I’m currently learning React and I’m using it to power one of my self-improvement sites. It’s still a work in progress.
- Ops: Amazon Web Services/servers.
- I have experience in setting up a server from scratch and deploying via Capistrano.
- I’m currently studying for the AWS Solutions Architect certification exam as a potential benchmark of my skills.
- Other language/framework: Elixir/Phoenix.
- On the weekends, when I have time, I study Elixir and Phoenix. I’m currently creating an app to help me keep track of good habits I want to do every day.
- I write about my daily learnings in software development here: Today I Learned.
- High communication and client-facing skills.
- At my last company, we were in scrums four times a week. I am very comfortable conversing in English.
- I have spoken at RubyConf Philippines and multiple times at the Philippine Ruby User Group meetups. I blog frequently about my progress at my website, Daryll Codes.
- Before I was a developer, I worked at a call center here in the Philippines. I took up to 40 calls a day as a technical support rep. I created several spiels and email templates to decrease our team’s average call time.
- Training/onboarding developers.
- When I was at my previous company, I taught Ruby/Rails to two of our developers (who were transitioning from other languages). They’re still at the company and are now handling client projects.
- Because I was the senior developer closest to the juniors, I acted as the second line of defense whenever there was a programming problem.
- I am very much a lifelong learner, with over 100,000 lines of notes at my lifelong-learning repo. I’ve also finished 25+ Coursera courses.
- I maintain a very long reading list. I’ve read over 50 books in personal development.
- I am a very hardworking individual who isn’t afraid to get out of the comfort zone. My hobbies include long-distance cycling (I cycle 200km a week) and hiking (25+ mountains scaled).
