Jovan Jay M. Villamor
Full Stack Web Applications Developer

About Me

I am a Full Stack Web Applications Engineer with 18 years experience in Web based applications, having specialised in LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP), and is keen on latest Front-End technologies such as ReactJS and VueJS to name a few.

I started using Open Source Software since college years up until present. Most of the Web Applications projects I handled are built using LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP) Stack as the main backend infrastructure. I have spent 14 years in Website Development which encompasses Front-End and Back-end developement. I am currently based in Melbourne Australia.

I am an avid fan of ReacJS, on my spare time I am doing some ReactJS + Redux + Electron for a personal project a ReactJS Web/Desktop Application and I also tried Mobile App using React Native + Redux, together with Firebase as my back-end and GeoFireBase as my location services.
