About me

Albert Nera is an engineering graduate of California State University Long Beach, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology and a Computer Science Minor in Web Technology Applications.

 

Professionally, Albert has pursued a career in web development and web project management which has allowed him to acquire experience working directly with clients and company managers to design, and develop website projects from the ground up as well as maintain existing online products and expand internet outreach through better seo, social media and online campaigns.

 

From a young age Albert has been interested in understanding how technology works and how it can be applied to expand knowledge and improve society. At the same time he embraced his artistic side and used art and design as the means of exploring how different technology works. He would spent hours studying cutout diagrams of vehicles and devices.

 

Once he felt he had grasped an understanding of the mechanics, he would start sketching and try to design and create similar machines on paper. As time passed this led Albert to considered going into Automotive design and then Aerospace Engineering. However he ultimately settled on pursuing a degree in computer science and electronics engineering.

Through his education in computer engineering and computer science at Cal-State Long Beach, Albert gained an insight into the fundamentals of hardware architecture, electronic theory, programming languages and the application of different forms of computer and web technology for industrial purposes, consumer products, education, and business.

 

Today, as a web project manager and web developer Albert applies his experience hand coding websites as well as his technical knowledge in the application of computer technology to develop solutions for business, industry and education.

As an independent developer for AEC Albert’s first major task was to help establish AEC’s Reseller Web Hosting capabilities and transfer over AEC owned domains as well as the company website. Upon completion of those tasks he then transitioned over to the redevelopment of ICCOEC.org which is the official website of the Orange Empire Chapter Of the International Code Council. This project required the migration of major content from their old HTML static website to their new WordPress based dynamic website as well as training for ICCOEC members on how to use WordPress to update content. Today, Albert remains in contact with AEC’s president, John Surge and provides ongoing consulting and assistance in the management of client accounts including scheduling weekly backups and doing emergency website recoveries.
