I completed the National Certificate in Datametrics in 2008.

Currently I am continuing with a degree in BSc Computer Science, the Computational Intelligence stream.

More about me

My technology pursuits thus far have consistently been steered towards non-mainstream projects. Some people I know claim that this is a pathological desire to be different. That is nonsense, they are obviously just blinded by conformity.

After Linux (and the BSD's to an extent) went mainstream, I became interested in software development. I also realized that it was a mistake not to have studied after school. This drove me into my current predicament: balancing work-related technology passions, study-related interests, husbandly adventures and my love for mountains and wind.

Currently I work as a software developer for a smallish financial services company in Centurion, Pretoria. We mostly use Smalltalk, with a fair amount of Python added to the mix.

My current interests include functional programming and (surprisingly) the mathematical and theoretical principles behind Computer Science.

Module Graph

I created this graph of my module requirements to see if I can get a clear overview of what still needs to be done.
