In case you haven’t been following me, I left migme (previously known as mig33) after 4 years and 7 months there. I went in as a Web Engineer and along the way I got promoted to Senior Web Engineer. It has been an awesome ride with my fellow colleagues in migme.
When I first joined mig33 back on 1st February 2010, I got a brand new MacBook Pro 15″ (Mid 2009) running on Intel Core 2 Duo (2.66 GHz) and with 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM. Over the years, my MacBook Pro became slower and slower as applications get more and more intensive and OS gets more and more resource demanding.
I made a couple of “complains” to my immediate supervisor and eventually he approved my Purchase Order (PO) to get a new MacBook.
It has been 1 year since I started working at mig33 (this is my first job)! Till date, I am still learning lots of new stuff everyday at work!
We do not just do coding, but also reading up on new technology trends and how we can deploy them to production so that they bring benefits to the company. For the past year, I learn stuff like Hadoop, Redis, Memcached, RabbitMQ and on top of that scaling the LAMP stack and making them as efficient as possible is what we do as well.
Been working on mig33 Android Client for the past few months with my colleagues. I am tasked to style the Android native UI using Java/XML as well as the webpages in HTML5/CSS3. Been fun working on the Android but styling the native UI is sometimes very tedious! I wonder will it be easier on iOS.
And now, the first beta of mig33 Android Client is ready for download! You need to be using Android 2.1 (Eclair) and above in order to use the app.
