My name is Raul Morales, Jr. and I am 27 years old. I relocated from New Jersey to Florida to provide a better future for my family. I have been developing apps for almost a year now. I am a motivated individual and as such, have done much research on the topic and taught myself how to create and develop apps with the help of stackoverflow.com, teamtreehouse.com, and Udemy.com. I am also fortunate enough to have a close friend who is a developer that works for Samsung and he has educated me in this field and provided pertinent information to further my career.
My passion is mobile development. I am a high school graduate with no secondary education and have not obtained any degrees in development, but I know that in today's business environment, technologically advanced companies are looking for individuals with actual hands-on skills, who are dedicated, self-motivated and who have the ability to take on projects from inception to finalization. Degrees and/or certifications, although very important, are not exactly necessary in today's market. However, I am not adverse to furthering my education. I'm currently taking additional courses for development through Udemy and will continue to search for the latest courses to keep up to date in this field.
Before I started working in app development, I had an app developed for myself called "Everything Edge", which allowed users to apply themes to their Samsung Galaxy Note Edge devices. This app is still one of the most downloaded apps for that specific phone. I paid an acquaintance of mine to bring my idea to life. The app has "in app" purchases, as well as advertisements. It was released in early 2015 and generated approximatley $10k in income. The app is still going and in demand.
My goal is to obtain a dream job in the app developing field and I am focused on reaching that goal. I work well with others and am a team player. I believe I will be an asset to any company looking to hire new talent with fresh ideas and a vision for the future.
