About Me

Me just a guy that loves technical stuffs, likes to do programming as much as I enjoy, even though, I am not that good and intelligent enough.

I like writing and taking notes of everything I learn. Most of them are blogged in my websites.

In my past years, I've done lots of works for Android development, and some of them were noted in my old well-known Android blogging site, Android Code Breaker Diary. Also, I'd like to thank all the guys that favored and read the blog, I still continue with Android work; but notes will not be written there any longer.

Two years ago, I decided to move all blogs into one, that is, Geek Note.

Due for some reasons, I feel like WordPress is not sufficient for me personally, so I, one more time, move my blogging platform to Medium. You can find all of my blog articles at, @petehouston.

Recently, I just get involved in the web part and feel really interested in a lots of interesting and powerful technologies. The web community is truely growthful nowadays in a fast pace, and I love to master them all someday. The latest piece of my work is running by Laravel framework, a lovely one.

You can check out some of my works below.

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.
