I'm a South African software developer currently living nomadically in Europe.
In the middle of 2010 I left Germany to go traveling through South America for 4.5 months with my girlfriend (now wife) before moving back to Cape Town, South Africa where I started a company, Opkode CC.
In July 2014 I moved back to Munich and worked as a freelancer and consultant.
At the end of 2017, my wife and I dissolved most of our household, packed everything we can into our car and started traveling around Europe with the car. We move to a new location every month or so.
I have an engineering degree from the University of Stellenbosch (B.EngSci, Computer Systems), with a final year focus on Applied Mathematics and Digital Image Processing.
I've been working as a web developer since 2005, mainly in Python, frameworks such as Zope, Grok, Pyramid and with the Plone content management system. I've done core development on Zope and Plone and have contributed numerous add-ons.
I often help companies to integrate instant messaging into their websites and intranets, for example live helpdesk and customer support or social networking and group chat.
Please contact me if you'd like to know more. I look forward to hearing from you.
