Joel Bryan Juliano
I love GTK+ programming, and very enthusiastic about GNOME and Linux. I like solving problems, and providing software solutions to make life in linux easy.
I love to design attractive HIG compliant GUI interfaces and make them work seemlessly. I'm obsessed with GUI attractiveness and functionality, I try to learn the designs from Mac OSX, Windows Vista, and other OS's.
Software Design & Linux Involvement
During mid college years (late 2003), I got involved as a VP-Internal on a student IT group called ite@ch. It was a blast, because my part was not VP stuff, but I'm on the technical stuff like software design, art and multimedia, the things that I enjoyed most.
And later that year, I joined a web design comptetion, and won 2nd place. By the end of the year, we got financial problems, so I wasn't able to enroll.
Being bored at home, I find a job, and worked as a Technical Consultant (Feb 2004), specializing for Linux and Open Source related technology. During those times, I was introducing Fedora Core 1, MySQL Database, GTK+ and PHP for SME and Manufacturing businesses. A part of my job is integrating their business process from different department to an ERP system. I in-house-develop their ERP, POS systems and done some migration to Fedora Core 1. Working there is a blast, It's my first work, and I really enjoyed it. Then, classes starts again, this time, I have enough money to enroll, I endo my contract without renewing and continue studying.
Then while I was studying in AMA Computer University, Makati. I worked as a Student Assistance in the IT department, where I deploy Fedora Core 2 servers (2004) to handle DHCP, Squid Proxy, tasks. And last year, the IT team and I deployed dual-boot Ubuntu 5.04 with Windows XP to 300 computers (2005).
In June 2006, I have installed Dapper Drake to more than 300 computers on AMA Computer University.
As a college student, I worked on numerous thesis, software projects. GTK+ Based on Windows and Linux platform.
In 2006, I was hired by AMA Computer University to build their own distribution, which is called "AMA Desktop Linux", It features comfortability of Microsoft-Windows users. It has several applications and wizards exclusively for the distribution, to ease the use of the system for the users and the administrator. I can say it's entirely unique distribution. It would be released soon.
My first Linux experience was in late 1996, where I download and install a 6 floppy version of Linux called "Monkey Linux" in a BBS.
I'm a full college scholar student.
