About Me Projects Code Snippets

Raymond Hernandez, MSEM

I am an IT Professional with a comprehensive background in hardware and software development. My proficiency ranges across the full stack, employing tools and frameworks like PHP/Apache, Python/Django, C#/ASP.Net, SQL, Java, JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS. My backend development foundation is solidly anchored in PHP, complemented by an adept knowledge of Python, especially for application development and data analytics. On the frontend, I utilize contemporary tools to ensure an intuitive and smooth user experience. I have a deep understanding of API programming, facilitating efficient data integrations.

In addition to web technology, I have hands-on experience in mobile application development, specializing in building applications for both iOS and Android platforms.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from California State University, Northridge, and later obtained a Master of Science in Engineering Management, specializing in Systems Engineering, from National University, San Diego.

Outside of my professional pursuits, I enjoy playing the guitar, indulging in Japanese animations, video games, collecting vintage Japanese robots, and binge-watching the Star Wars trilogy.

The projects documented here are for the purposes of peer review and education.
