Cape Academy for Maths, Science and Technology

High School 2015

I can honestly say that Cape Academy for Maths, Science and Technology (CAMST) is where my passion for programming grew. Shout out to Mr. Zuko Ndabambi, my high school IT teacher, who taught me everything I know about Java.

Work

Zero Zero One

Intern November 2016 - February 2017

At Zero Zero One (001) I interned as a WordPress developer. This internship improved my CSS and PHP knowledge and I learnt a lot of principles regarding effective web design. I owe Dave Moller many thanks for his insight and constant motivation.

Code for South Africa

Intern June - July 2016

During my internship at Code4SA I used the power behind Jekyll to create static websites. Jekyll is a really good static site generator for generating static websites or blogs. Besides the many skills that I acquired, I'm glad to have met all the wonderful people who made it a joy to work there.

Quotes

  • Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.

    Steve Jobs
  • I do not think there is any quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.

    John D. Rockefeller
