Hi! My name is Jon. I’m a technology professional and I’ve been working in IT for 20+ years. I’m mainly a developer, and from time to time I also take up other duties such as technical/team lead and trainer.
I’ve worked in the corporate setting as well as in government R&D, with non-profit organizations and tech firms big and small, serving clients in banking, manufacturing, telecoms, digital security, incentives and education.
My projects range from web, mobile and desktop apps to e-commerce websites, SMS gateways, device drivers, and embedded systems!
Nowadays, I use Microsoft technologies (ASP.NET Core, Entity Framework, SQL Server and Visual Studio) to build web apps and WordPress for simple websites, but in the past I’ve also used other languages such as C, C++ and Java.
The breadth of my work has brought me to Australia, China, France, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore.
Outside of my main job, I’ve been working on jonbolo.com and exploring how it could benefit others in the developer community. Throughout my journey, I’ve learned a lot from other developers through their personal blogs and now I’d also like to help others in the same way.
I started jonbolo.com not too long ago as a simple collection of how-to’s and lists of useful tools and tech. Today, we’re growing this modest blog into a resource where fellow devs can find ideas and advice. We hope to make life better for developers through the sharing of knowledge, tools and experience.
