About Me
Hi, my name is Louiery Sincioco (a.k.a. Sin). I was born in the Philippines in 1976 and migrated to the U.S. when I was 11. I learned to program in the 7th grade using Logo on the Commodore 64 and Apple IIe.
The Start of My Career
At the age of 16, I graduated high school, started college and got my first professional programming job. By the age of 20, I had already worked for Oracle, Intel and Microsoft.
The Art of Software Engineering
Designing Great Solutions
The secret to designing great solutions is KISS.

Keep It Simple Stupid

When tackling or designing a solution to a problem, keep your design and solution as simple as possible.

"Simple can be harder than complex."
— Steve Jobs
Code for Readability
Write simple, easy-to-read, well-formatted and well-commented code that others can easily understand.

Treat your code as if it’s a work of art

The fewer lines of code you write, the fewer the potential bugs, the fewer surface attacks, the fewer lines to QA and test, and the fewer lines of code to maintain down the road.

Imagine yourself as the person who would be maintaining the code you are writing today!

"If you want to hire an engineer,
look at the guy's code."
— Bill Gates
Handling Complex Problems
Even the most complex problems can be tackled fairly easily if you begin with this premise:

Know What You Don't Know

Then split the problem into the smallest chunks that you can handle at a time. If you remove the unknowns, the complexity goes away. Like magic! What’s left is the work to be done. The easy part!

"Education is not the learning of facts,
but the training of the mind to think."
— Albert Einstein
Find Your Passion
Find a line of work that you can be excited about. One that makes you want to get out of bed.

Your work should energize you and bring out the best in you!

"Sometimes it is the people no one
imagines anything of who do the
things that no one can imagine.
— Alan Turing
