I’m a software engineer in Cape Town, South Africa. I currently work for Prodigy Finance, where I’m part of an energetic tech team that is rapidly transforming to keep pace with the change of a startup in the growth phase (we hope without the usual hangups that come with Enterprise IT).

I decided to start this blog because I’ve been reading a lot of software books lately, and I always learn a bit more by packaging what I learn for other people. I’m a big believer in the value of books over blog posts and Youtube tutorials. Books communicate far more information, and the process of writing large quantities of words makes authors engage with their work in a way that media with lower barriers to entry do not. The result is so often much more coherent and helpful than just piecing together information from the Internet.
