Darwinian Software “Evolving Code with Darwin Molero” is where I will blog about major technical hurdles that I have overcome in my career as a software developer. In here I will document my experiences in the field of computing, the problems I have encountered, and the solutions that I have adopted to solve those problems. Most of the time, the solutions that I will be sharing with you will be in the form of code, script or commands. I know that there will be better codes and more elegant scripts and commands to solve the same problems. And so I will continuously improve on what I have here with whatever new found knowledge I gain along the way.

The software industry is ever evolving. What I learned today may not be that useful anymore tomorrow. New tech stacks come out to solve problems both old and new. I believe that code must continue to evolve. Code I write today could look ridiculous when I come back to it after some time.

Say it with me: “If my old code isn’t crap, I haven’t learned anything since I wrote it!”

I am Darwin Molero, a self-employed web developer with expertise in Django/Python. I am strong in both back-end and front-end development using React.JS, jQuery, HTML5/CSS3 and Less. I have developed web applications ranging from startups to full-featured enterprise solutions. I code from ground zero up to deployment.

I am a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and been in the IT industry since 1998. I have extensive experience in various programming languages in the past including PHP, C#.Net, Visual C++, Visual Basic, Java, Clipper, C and Assembly Language.

Right now I have focused in Django/Python and made it my forte in my home-based jobs. I code on a MacBook Air running Mac OS X.
