I attended Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University where I learned to code better than I use too. My studies taught me Java, VB.NET and C# as programming languages and in database programming I gaind skills in Oracle's PL-SQL and Microsoft SQL's T-SQL.
After university HandMade Connections employed me as a junior developer where I coded in PHP. My main role was to assist with the integration of new HTML/CSS templates into the existing CMS. My skills in Web SEO also took a great leap forward.
In March 2008 I moved to Cape Town where I joined PCT. I was employed as a developer and had to support legacy code in VB6 as well as maintain an existing ASP.NET system with codebehind written in VB.NET. Development got better when I helped integrate a ESRI GIS decision making system.
I made a move to the city where I joined Fundamental Software. Here I learned alot about SCRUM and Agile Programming. Nothing against finance but I soon required a challenge.
In May 2010 PCT makes me an offer to become the senior software developer and the developer team's Manager. Here I help the company to become Agile and we implement SCRUM throughout the company. An issue tracking system is installed and adopted.
In started working at EOH Microsoft Coastal in October 2015. So far I have consulted at Sanlam where we implemented a online claims portal. After Sanlam I was sent to do consulting at Barclays CIB Digital.
I moved over to Barclays Africa and was employed as a Developer level 3 Vice President. Day one I skilled up on Terraform to convert existing AWS CloudFormation templates to scaffold out our cloud environments. I'll be heading up the Collections team.
