About me


I’m Arief, a solution architect, system analyst, system administrator and developer. I’ve been working for Indonesian Government since 2009 in Information and Communication Technology area. I’ve been involved in various projects including Indonesia Open Data Portal, National Complaint Handling System, and Innovation Management System.

I’m passionate about IT Strategic Planning, IT Security, DevOps, Open Source Software, Web Development, and Software Testing.

In the area of web development, I developed various applications for internal use and national level. They include Employee Attendance System, Electronic Meeting System, and National Program Monitoring System.

During my study in Australia, I worked as a casual tutor for Web Technology at the University. I was also active in IT Division of Indonesia Student Association in Australia (PPIA). I believe that sharing knowledge to others is fun and leads to deeper understanding on the topics. That motivates me to write articles in my blog and speak at IT seminars.
