Hello. I'm Daniel Ng.

Welcome to my personal website. Simply put, I develop IT Business Solutions. I'm passionate about developing solutions that are clean, effective and efficient. I'm a perfectionist and I take tremendous pride in my work. I like to challenge my own limitations and I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. This website is my outlet.

About Me

Born and raised in Malaysia. Later immigrated to Canada. I live and work in the Town of Plympton-Wyoming, a small town in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. I was actually born and raised in Malaysia of Chinese descent. I came to Canada at a young age of 19 and was immediately mesmerized by the beautiful winter here. OK, I lied. Winter here is long, harsh and bitter and I don't enjoy it one bit, but the other 3 seasons are absolutely perfect! I'm happily married, and like most programmers, I own a cat (or is it more appropriate to say it owns me?).

I've a diverse technical skill sets and I do wear many hats at work. For one, I am an experienced .NET software developer. From user consultation phase to solution implementation phase, from front-end UI design to back-end database development, I routinely do it all. I'm a one man wrecking crew, if you will. I'm also an experienced Geographic Information System (GIS) professional. From mapping to advanced spatial analysis, I'm also capable of doing it all. Last but not least, I've been administering the IBM Maximo Asset Management System since 2009. I've developed many custom BIRT reports, custom MBO classes and set up integrations between Maximo and other enterprise information systems.
