I wrote my first software program when I was 20. I am by no means a prodigy. This fact has deterred me from thinking I could ever be the best software developer, and create a Facebook or a Google. However, it has not deterred me from wanting to share my experiences writing software. There is a lot of work that has been done out there and I aim to dig and share. I was a computer science major and I am still to find that sweet spot where theory meets practice. The idea is to take this journey of pragmatism with a fair dose of theory. I am especially keen to investigate how software can be written in African languages. Since my mother tongue is Xitsonga, I have been experimenting with it. Another area I'm interested in is finance, so expect to see a few finance excursions.
