Hey, I'm Andre.

University Student

I'm an up and coming front-end developer and UX designer. Currently studying a Bachelor of Software Engineering with a Bachelor of International Studies in Japanese at the University of Technology Sydney.

My Story.

Since my early recollections of the 2000s, I have always been surrounded by all kinds of tech gear, learning life from a screen. The nostalgia of waking up to the sound of dial up and the electrifying touch of a CRT. A favourite memory of mine, spending all of my youth in dad’s makeshift workshop is what started it all, the journey of diving into the digital.

University Life.

I am active within the local cyber community, representing the UTS Cyber Security Society as Vice President for 2020 and various other societies that reflect my hobbies such as photography and longboarding. At UTS:CSEC, we help spread our enthusiasm of cyber by bridging the gap between industry and academia through our educational workshops.

Career Passion.

Besides my interest as a cyber enthusiast, I have developed several mobile and web applications that have received Excellence (2018) and Best Software (2019) awards. I am at the forefront of learning front-end technologies that pair with my passion for web app development and UX design.

Adventure.

I was fortunate to receive the New Colombo Plan Mobility Grant sponsored by UTS to partake in a business immersion program by Mitsui & Co., one of Japan’s largest sogo shosha (general store). It was an unforgettable experience where I understood the importance of learning a second language and the contrast between Western and Eastern business culture.

Software Studios

Software Studios are core subjects implemented into the UTS Software Major curriculum to simulate real life programming challenges. Students are randomly sorted into groups of 6 and have 12 weeks to deliver a functional application.

The first of 6 studios - this was the first time this subject ran at UTS. The new study plan at UTS aims to train development skills and promote teamwork amongst students. Assigned to Group 7, we were given 2 topics and chose to create a Fitness App using Android Studio.

The studio was an introduction to Agile Software Development, Android Studio and Git.
