Make 2020 the year you learn to code. Change your career, change your life. Through this site, I can help you do that.
Hi there! I'm Mike Dalisay, a pro software developer since 2010. I’m the founder and author of this site, the CodeOfaNinja programming blog.
In 2015, with the help of my knowledge and expertise with the above topics, I was able to start my own software company. My co-founder and I called it Codalify. We develop and maintain software products like SociableKIT.
In July 2017, I was interviewed by Indie Hackers, an online publication of a multi-billion dollar company called Stripe. Learn from our interview here.

Marykris De Leon has been in the IT industry since 2010.
She used to work as a systems analyst. In March 2014, she shifted her career and found her passion for search engine optimization, web design and development.
She started helping me with this site in April 2013. We both worked on it part time with hopes that this site can make our career portfolio look good and grow our careers.
She contributed a lot to The Code Of A Ninja by helping me improve its web design, user experience and some other features. She made use of her search engine optimization skills and customer relationship management as well.
Just in case you are curious, she and I were college classmates back in 2009. We are in a relationship since December 2010. We got married in January 2016.
I'm Mike Dalisay, a pro Software Developer since 2010. I love developing simple but useful software solutions. I'm responsible for the birth of this programming blog in September of 2010. I was using a free Blogger site.
Eventually, I registered codeofaninja.com back in June 2011 and migrated to self-hosted WordPress in 2014. I never thought people will like and support this website. I'm so grateful for that.
All tutorials and source codes in our blog are based on what I know can be useful for our learners. I also share my real-life experiences as an IT professional.
From late 2010 to early 2015, I worked for an IT company for 4 years and 8 months. I worked as a Software Developer.
In March 2015, I quit my job and co-founded a software company called Codalify. I'm very happy with this decision because I am able to serve more people in my own way. I'm very passionate about it.
Now, I get to spend more time building and maintaining my own products like this site, CodeOfaNinja, and SociableKIT.
How about YOU? We want to learn more about you. What are the topics you want us to cover? What tutorials do you want us to make?
