I’m Johnny Yacolca

Developer in Western Sydney

29 years young, tech enthusiast, perfectionist.

Hello, My Name is Johnny.

Johnny Yacolca, 29 years young, born in Lima, Peru and grew up in Western Sydney, Australia. Highly motivated creative developer with a passion for developing high quality end products being web applications, websites, videos and photos.

I currently work at Western Sydney University, where I spend most of my time planning, designing and developing awesome projects with the aim to enhance the student’s overall online learning experience through the use of interactive multimedia learning objects and innovative web applications.

On weekends, I spend time exploring and discovering the art of videography and photography. This fascination drives me to doing side work as a cameraman for celebratory events within the local community and beyond.

My Latest Work

I’m looking to expand my portfolio while I’m on top and while I’m young.

What I’m Doing

I love what I do. I take great pride in what I do. And I can’t do something halfway, three-quarters, nine-tenths. If I’m going to do something, I go all the way.

1. Web Development

I’ve been developing websites and web applpications for over 8 years and share strong passion for the latest web technologies and focus strongly on end user experience. I’m proficient and enjoy using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, as well as using PHP and MySQL.

2. Video Production

I’ve been video recording home videos since I was very young and have gained experience over time working as a media developer, producing videos for government and private sectors. I use Adobe Creative Cloud applications for all my media post-production needs.

3. Photography

I’ve been fascinated by photos in recent years and have been exploring the tools and techniques involved in capturing memorable moments using a DSLR. I have since been taking photos of celebratory occasions with the hispanic community and beyond.
