Hi, I'm Bryan Bibat and I'm a freelance software engineer based in Taguig City, Philippines. I have 9 years of experience in developing software, mainly web applications.
I guess you have some time on your hands since you're still reading this. In that case, you might want to head over to the bio section to know more about me. If you really have a lot of time on your hands, why not head over to my blog and read about the geeky stuff I'm into.
I am only available for contractual or part-time work.
For inquiries, you can contact me at my e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also contact me through skype (bry.bibat) as long as I am online.
While I may have worked with a bunch of platforms (and almost all major commercial databases) in my previous work, I can't put them here because of these three letters: NDA.
Given that all of my major projects for the HK SARG, I chose not to include them in my portfolio rather than risk having Jackie Chan or Jet Li-type policemen barge in my house and take me away somewhere.
Anyway, here is my portfolio, a short list of stuff I made post-enterprise development:
I want to teach software development to every Filipino who wants to learn how to build software.
This video blog/wiki is my way of doing just that.
In my experience, one of the most annoying parts about teaching Ruby on Rails is installing the whole thing. Whether it's the training room having limited internet connection or the students blatantly ignoring the steps written in the training manual, expect a bunch of stuff to crop up at the start of the training to waste 2-3 hours of your allotted time.
To remedy this problem, I've modified the official Ruby Installer for Windows to include all the necessary gems and dependencies to allow a trainee to start building Rails apps in less than 5 minutes.
With Rails 3.1 now out, I've decided to give away my student manual for Rails 3.0.

This is a Live Wallpaper implementation of Conway's Game of Life coded during the (non-official) Philippine leg of the Global Day of Code Retreat 2011.
I needed a new geeky wallpaper and a cute thing to code for the event. This was killing two birds with one stone.
(If you can't find the app via your phone's Market search, try using the search terms "code retreat".)
I'm a enterprise software engineer by trade but I got sick of the
whole corporate world life and quit my job. Nowadays, I spend my time
playing online games
doing research for my blog,
building side projects, and taking occassional freelance jobs.
Aside from development work, I also like to teach, especially given that local CS degree courses tend to be detached from the reality of software development. Public speaking is also one of my unusual hobbies, as unlike most of my software development colleagues, I'm not afraid to talk about stuff that I'm passionate about.
