Hello, my name is

Jose Yamut, Jr.

NieR:Automata and DLC Country Locked

For the Nintendo Switch game version. This is a fantastic game! Loving it. I happened to stumble upon a games news article talking about which Nintendo Switch games to play that have recently been released or coming out soon. That was in October. A month or so later, and here […]

Rewriting Nested If/Else

An often overlooked (perhaps) way to write cleaner if condition statements. This is not about having to go through all the refactoring into a Factory pattern, Switch statements, and other possible conditional logic methods just to avoid our classic if condition.

🐧 #name

Jose (hoh-seh)

The 'J' is silent. It is replaced with the sound of the letter 'h' instead. Both the 'o' and the 'e' are short. There are no diacritics on any letter as well. This is the normal Filipino pronunciation of my name.

🌏 #places

I must be a wanderer? Been hopping from one place to another the last 15 years or more. I've lost track as to how many times I've changed address, as in transfer from house to house, with little more than my laptop and a few other meager belongings. 😅

Wanderlust. I love to travel. It is an irony though that I am scared of going on airplanes. So the more accurate description is, “I enjoy seeing different places in person… lots of it, but not the flying part.”. My goal is to go to as many destinations all over the world as much as I can afford. I have made it an objective to travel to a different country at least once in a year.

🎮 #play

Fond of reading and writing (+rw), but seldom has the time for both anymore. Prefer paperback. 

A former World of Warcraft (WOW) addict. Had the Dota 2 phase too. Presently deliberating on the next Nintendo Switch game to buy.

Currently satisfied on binge-ing Netflix and YouTube content, lazily sat down on a couch munching peanuts or chips.
