Mc Dave Valdecantos

He started from a humble start-up company as an intern with only the knowledge of developing simple frontend skills (i.e., HTML, CSS, and basic javascript). He built his software engineer career with the same company for seven years, and he has never stopped learning, which led him to be the Lead Software Engineer of the firm. He has learned many things from backend, DevOps, frontend, iOS, and product development, yet he believes that he still has many things to know to grow in this industry.

He likes code challenges, architecting solutions, and knowledge sharing, ultimately. And he believes in the idea of “If THEY can do it, then I can do it – It’s just a matter of time.”

He also loves the idea of maintaining a work-life balance. When he is not busy doing programming, he spends time with his wife and family doing quality time or building Gundam action figures.

Mc Dave earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from FEU Institute of Technology in the Philippines.
