Having graduated from college with a baccalaureate degree in Marketing Management, Alphonse’ real passion has really been with computing. He started out with programming in the dBASE III Plus / Clipper 87 platforms, took a SAD course in SGV. Worked at Philcopy as a programmer and did some work for a construction firm. Later on he went into business and sales.
He wasn’t really at ease with ASP since he felt he needed to be with a platform that really helped developers like him grow. PHP/MySQL was the better choice since there are millions of code on the internet that one could readily use and adopt.
