Personal Profile

Developer. Enthusiast. Perfectionist.

profile

I am a self-taught, self-sufficient, motivated Web Developer. I strive to deliver the best quality, efficient and modern code possible.

Attention to detail is my greatest professional concern, without it my work would just be average. I take great care in writing clean and readable, high quality code as the presentation of my work is the legacy which I leave.

My favourite part of the work is dealing with the UX, although every other part is just as important. I prioritise visual perfection and user friendliness – with a simple test to judge if it is good enough: Would I like working with it as an end user?

I feel at ease working in either a team environment or working alone. Being a self-taught developer also means that I am at the stage in my career where I feel it necessary to "pay it forward" and help mentor junior developers.

I have more than nine years of experience in the software development industry and although I have no formal tertiary education, I believe that my practical experience has been an education of its own. This should stand me in good stead to complete any project successfully.

Recent Experience

Investec

Senior Developer (Aug 2015 - Current)

At Investec I get to be involved in the wonderful world of Anti Money Laundering (AML).

Our main weapon against criminals, terrorists and unscrupulous politicians is a product called Nice Actimize. However, talking about how it works and exactly what it does is againts the rules.

Other than AML, I am also tasked at helping maintain our 3rd party products and the supporting custom software they need.

At Investec, I have also been very lucky to have a developer as a manager. He has been instrumental at introducing me to the concept of Software Craftsmanship. Other than the fact that I have always been applying the concepts of Software Craftsmanship, at least subconsciously, it has been great to formalize my own philosophy regarding the code I write.

I am also heavily involved in shaping the future of my team's development path in terms of the tools and technology stacks we will use. This includes leading the way in terms of Node.js adoption and various options this enables us to unlock.
