Exporting my blog to Facebook

I haven't touch my blog for a while. A friend of mines export his blog as notes onto Facebook. So ... I wanted to do the same.

Post about no Post II

I'll keep this short. Since UCLA, I worked for Fox Interactive Media/Myspace ... for about 10 months. I now find myself working for National TeleConsultants for more than a year. And unlike years ago, I'm doing Java almost everyday. To be honest, I've been doing it almost everyday since I worked for UCLA.

I have grown to become a technology agnostic, or I tried to be. I even program in C# (a very nice language) now. Not sure how I feel about it. All I know is that I don't think or view things the same as before. A change that I'm not happy about is ... I too busy coding to keep my skills up to date. I hope to change that and hoping will be able to blog about it.

Post about no posts

I started my new job as a Programmer/Analyst IV at UCLA not to long ago, August 21st to be exact. I promise myself then, that I'll use this blog a lot more to talk about stuff I learn on the job and how I feel about those technologies. Well ... it’s been about 6-7 weeks, and no new post.

There are lots of reasons why. I'm still adapting to and trying to find my place at my new job. I've been busy learning all the technologies we use here and trying to be productive enough to meet and exceed my coworker's expectations. But if I have to be honest, it’s because I'm lazy and am not in the habit of blogging.

So I decided to resolve that by writing this blog. And hopefully follow with something meaningful later today. Hence, my first post on this blog since my new job is about ... nothing :).

My Profesional Profile

In short, I'm a Java programmer trapped in a Perl Developer’s Career.

I graduated in ‘98 with a B.S. in CS from UCSB with an eye working with my favorite language ... Java. But Java wasn't so hot back then and I ended up doing Perl in my first job out of college at

Since then, I've mainly been developing with Perl. I have a lot of experience working with Java professionally, but the Perl offers are so much higher that I've mainly been developing with Perl in my Career. I do love Perl, I just love Java more.

As for my professional interests, I'm all about data and machine learning. I LOVE studying, analyzing, organizing, modeling, and mining data to try to make it more useful or get some useful information out of it like statistics. I also like to study the processes involved and making it better. Hence, I have a strong interest in learning, using, and helping develop frameworks that deal with manipulating, managing, and analyzing data like Spring Framework, Catalysts, O/R mapping, Rule Engines, etc. My love for making data useful leads me to my second professional love, machine learning.

Machine learning is defined by Wikipedia as, “an area of artificial intelligence concerned with the development of techniques which allow computers to learn". Lots of organizations/entities have tons of data which they struggle to make use of. To compound the problem, they tend to consume data at a much faster rate than they can analysis. This is a problem I love to work on, creating systems which makes decisions base on statistics generated from analysis of incoming data in real time. All I can say is, ... What a rush.
