My first work experience was during school, where I spent 3 days at a computer infrastructure company crimping coax connections and learning to solder on a rs232 plug. The smell of solder and burnt flesh still lingers in my nostrils…ouch.
I’m a developer with over 10 years of experience in various fields of the IT industry.
In 2001 I started with a company called CMG, who became LogicaCMG and now just Logica. I’ve had the opportunity to play with a myriad of tools for a variety of different industries. Starting with Powerbuilder on a Sybase database, moving to a Powerbuilder and Oracle setting with some unix C scripting the onto Java and MySQL, SQL Server, VB6, LinkWorks and the .Net framework just to name a few.
I now work for one of leading IT companies in South Africa, BBD. Here I focus primarily on Microsoft technologies. C# .NET, SQL server, Silverlight, WPF etc.
