I am a lecturer. I have been teaching software development since 2007. During my teaching career, I have been teaching the following courses:

  • Object-Oriented Programming
  • .NET Application Development
  • Web Application Development
  • Introduction to Software Engineering
  • Software Construction
  • Software Configuration Management
  • Software Architecture
  • Software Project Management
  • Software Engineering Capstone
  • Cloud Computing (Graduate Course)
  • Distributed Systems (Graduate Course)

I’m interested in philosophy, psychology, history, economics, movies, literature, music, and software engineering research.

I hold a PhD degree in Computer Science. My main research areas are

  • Software design, software architecture, software design patterns, multi-tenant architecture for enterprise systems;
  • Software process, software project management for managing enterprise software development projects;
  • Data structures, algorithms, programming languages and frameworks for engineering desktop, web, mobile, cloud-based enterprise software and games;
  • Machine learning algorithms and deep learning architectures for building natural language processing and computer vision systems.

I am a practical person. I advocate learning and researching by doing. I have been developing software since 2000, working in various industry projects as a Software Engineer, a Team Leader, a Project Manager,  a Technical Architect, and a Solution Architect. I designed several successful commercial multi-tenancy enterprise systems.

My experience includes

  • Eliciting project ideas, identifying project scope, estimating and controlling project size, cost, duration and risks, developing prototypes and proof of concepts, managing software development and improving software development processes;
  • Evaluating and proposing architectures and technologies for enterprise software systems and multi-tenancy software systems;
  • Developing enterprise software systems and their ecosystem (i.e. services, desktop clients, mobile clients, web applications, specific add-ons, 3rd party and legacy systems integration) using
    – C, C++, Windows API, C++ Builder, Cocos2d-x;
    – Objective C, Swift, iOS SDK;
    – Java, Android SDK, AndEngine;
    – HTML, JavaScript, CSS, C#, .NET Framework, Windows Forms, ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC, Windows Communication Foundation, ADO.NET, NHibernate, Entity Framework, Microsoft SQL Server, SQL Server Reporting Services, Oracle, DotNetNuke, Kentico, Amazon Web Services, Okta;
    – PHP, MySQL, Drupal, WordPress;
    – Node.js, Express, PostgreSQL;
    – R and R packages; and
    – Apex, Salesforce, and Lightning Component Framework.
  • Applying natural language processing and computer vision to enhance existing software systems using
    – Python, TensorFlow, Keras, scikit-learn,
    – OpenCV, Deep Speech, and Tacotron.

I welcome and appreciate any feedback and suggestions for this website. My short term strategy is to document some of my experiences for reference and to create a full, concrete and easy process for high school students and absolute beginners to learn to develop software.

My long term strategy is to make a place for a small group of people to discuss about software engineering, software engineering education and training, software engineering research, and share their experiences.

Please feel free to contact me or leave a comment if you have any questions or comments.
