- My name is Baru. (Internet Name)
I am a Nursing student from Japan.
But I was a Web developer and a Front end designer.
My field of expertise is in Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks. My cod skills are HTML5, CSS3, PHP and CMS.
Therefore, I create programs, designs, and drawings. I’m also interested in art.
Currently, I’m studying WordPress and Laravel.
- jQuery Mobile
- Movable Type
I started making websites when I was in Junior High School. Since then, web design and illustration have become my hobbies.
At first, I wanted to take up Film and Web Design as a major. However, my parents told me to take up Programming and Networking instead. As a result, I graduated with a major of Management and Information science. At the same time, I studied a vocational course on Web Design for 6 months.
In 2009, I started my first job as a Front End Developer for a private IT company in Nagoya, Japan where I worked for four and a half years. In 2012, I won the best coder award in my company.
I did a 2 months internship working as a UI Designer and a Front End Developer for a local company in Malaysia. I was able to work in an English speaking environment. Unfortunately, halfway though my internship, I was robbed on my way to the office. After that incident I was transferred to a remote location, where I worked from home.
Studying English in the Philippines
In September 2013, I left for the Philippines to study English in Baguio city for 3 months. For the first two months, I learned Basic English conversation and for my final term, I had lessons in Basic English and Business English.
My visit to Taiwan
In March 2014, I went to Taiwan for sightseeing for a month. I stayed in the shared house in Taipei and the host was Taiwanese. I had one week to tour Tainan and Kaohsiung. Staying in the shared house in Taipei was a very good experience because I met a lot of different people from many countries. As I was living with many different nationalities, I was able to speak English everyday. I also went to many Chinese museums in Taiwan. Therefore, I was able to experience a lot of Chinese culture.
