I work as a Software Specialist at Derivco in Durban SA. Software specialist is a fancy way of saying that I have to deliver production code as well as coming up with new and innovative ways of using existing and new technologies. I love it!! Before joining Derivco I worked for Developmentor as a researcher / instructor, where I was responsible for the database curriculum.
Having worked with SQL Server since it shared codebase with Sybase, my main technology interest is databases in general and SQL Server specifically. I am also very interested in message based applications, distributed and concurrent systems. Recently functional programming has caught my eye, and I try to "dabble" with F#, Erlang and Haskell.
