What is J-Techsha?

About me

I'm a technologist strongly believe in continuous learning. I started my software engineering journey from web development, then onto native mobile development. Now... due to high demands at work, I'm back into learning web technologies like PWA, Typescript, Redux, React... and find it extremely exciting. Next, I'm looking forward to learning more about Cloud Computing, Architecture, ML and AR.

My hobbies and interest include playing soccer, video games and watching anime. But my biggest hobbie is... learning new technologies. Soccer, video games and animes are amazing but sometimes learning something new, thinking about this newly acquired skills, and what I can do with them?

It makes me feeling like I'm a superhero who just discovered a new power!


What is J-Techsha?

I wanted to find a word that would represent my identity, my skillsets and goals for this website. So, this is what I came up with. J is the first letter of my first name and Tech is for technology. As for most languages, one pronouciation can mean several different things, in Japanese, the word "sha" can be used with another word to form the word warrior 武者 (bu-sha) or company 会社 (kai-sha). I think this makes a lot of sense to me as programmers tend to be like warriors when they work insanely hard. Sometimes they will work without eating nor sleeping for hours or even a day or two trying to resolve some tough bugs. (My record was working 52 hours straight while I was in my 4th year of school.) I believe a lot of dedicated programmers who have professional pride will agree with me on that as sometimes you have to make the extra effort to make sure things goes well. And the other meaning of sha (company) also makes sense as I'm trying to demonstrate the work I do through this personal website of mine.
