About Me

Me just a guy loves to explore the world of programming. Currently, I have my focuses on web and mobile development technology on various frameworks and libraries; just to name a few, Laravel framework, AngularJS, Ionic framework, ReactJS, NodeJS, Codeception, Google Android...

When I have time, I spend on developing and contributing to several open-source projects. You can check out some of my works below or via my github.

Feel like having problems while developing software? We might already have discussed to each others on StackOverflow. Have a look at my StackOverflow profile to see if I can help you in any way.

Also, check out my technical blog on Medium if you have interests in.

Apart from work, I like to read books, hang around with friends, explore the design world and play music; I especially enjoy playing guitar.

Description: As you might know, there are a lot of Java libraries that support parsing HTML content out there. Jsoup is yet another HTML parsing library, but it provides a lot of functionalities and boasts much more interesting features when compared to others. Give it a try, and you will see the difference!

This is the first book I wrote and published, I know the book is not good enough to meet all of your expectations. Fairly to say, I am still a novice programmer. Thanks for all of your comments, I am doing my best to improve the book better.
