I am a Software Developer currently based in Germiston, South Africa. I am currently employed as a Systems Developer at ADvTECH in the Independent Institute of Education (IIE) Department as part of the Integrated Tertiary Systems Unit (ITSU) Team.
During College I was part of a Geeks club. We were a group of students who would occasionally meet up and share information on the latest tech, trends and show off projects we were busy with. The club fairly worked to its extent as we managed to learn from one another not only from a technical development perspective, but on the socializing front as well. It is no secret that many I.T individuals, especially programmers are not as social as many would like them to be (some may disagree with me on this), so the Geeks club gave us the platform to develop some people skills.
I love reading especially about technology and sport, listen to podcasts, watch online tutorials or jus reading up on Blogs about topics in I.T I find interesting. I enjoy watching animation movies, series or anything cartoon based, PC Gaming, and spending some time with family. I also spend my time watching soccer preferably the English Premier League (EPL) mainly because I am a HUGE Arsenal fan (no matter how many times they break my heart) I still remain a very proud Arsenal fan at heart.
Outside work, I do a lot of development that is driven by open-source technologies. I have also worked on projects very closely with the folks at Typit especially side by side with Christian the CO-Founder of the group itself. You can watch out for these projects on their site at www.typit.net.
