Hi, I'm Bryan Bibat and I'm a software engineer based in Taguig City, Philippines. I have 10 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 also have a bookstore over at Leanpub where I'm crowdfunding future books.
I am not looking for 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.
Please note that I may choose to ignore your inquiries for obvious (MLM recruitment, asking me to do free work) and not-so-obvious reasons.
If you absolutely have to get in touch with me, your best bet is to meet me at the next PhRUG or DevCon event.
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.
Anyway, here is my portfolio, a short list of stuff I made post-enterprise development:
beta published, continuously updated
A basic step-by-step guide to setting up your own Ruby or Rails server. Heroku's great, but setting up a server from scratch isn't that complicated either.
published, continuously updated
Originally a rushed manual for a weekend workshop of 40 people, I've expanded this book to include more pictures and diagrams to make it easier for beginners to grasp basic game concepts.
I've decided to give away my student manual for Rails 3.0 after the release of Rails 3.1.
Released, rarely updated
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.

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. I spend my time nowadays
playing online games
lending my skills to software development-related outreach programs (ie. speaking in seminars, volunteering in events),
building side projects, and doing research for my blog.
My contact details are at the end of the skills section above.
