About JV Roig

Hello, I'm JV Roig, an IT consultant and cloud technologist.

I haven't been maintaining this site for a while now. You should go to my LinkedIn instead. It has more stuff about me, as well as all of my latest articles.

I have a Master's Degree in Information Management, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and Information Technology, both from Asia Pacific College (summa cum laude).

I am in fact the very first summa cum laude of Asia Pacific College. I also received two other awards during my college graduation: Outstanding Project Award and the Internship Award, both for my work in creating a school management system during my 6-month internship as the sole developer of an external client.

For my post grad degree, I also graduated top of the class, but the award does not have a latin title, and is instead more humbly called "With Honors" as is the tradition of the Asia Pacific College Graduate School.

I have been into programming for more than a decade. So far I have used QBasic, Pascal, C, C++, Visual Basic, Java, PHP, Scheme (a LISP dialect), Python and Assembly. I also dabble in bash scripting, for Linux stuff. These days, though, I only really enjoy programming in Python, with the occasional bash scripting and C, mostly for experiments.

I am an avid martial artist with a blackbelt in taekwondo. I am also a gym buff and love hitting the weights as frequently as my busy schedule permits - usually two quick sessions every week. Despite my martial arts and gym habits, I am in fact an extremely patient, non-violent person.
