What I'm Doing

I love what I do. I take great pride in what I do. Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication. I love creating software that matters.

1. Design and Architecture

Get burned a few times by jumping into code without planning and one learns to appreciate, the process of design and architecting a system before one sits down to write code. Experience is the best teacher ad turns an eager coder into a patient software architect and engineer.

2. Coding

I love the caffeine induced coding zone, when its just me and my bits. The power of creating and giving rise to applications that solve real life challenges, is an engrossing obsession for me and i am lucky to have it as a profession. I see in binary.

3. Dev Ops

Repositiories, source control, build engines, continous integration and deployment, i cannot live without Dev Ops, even for a small project i am working on as a single developer. Its now a part of my development DNA

4. Testing

Once you use tests you can never go back! Unit Tests, intergration tests, UI testing and A?B tests are tools that are indespensible to my work.

5. Mentorship

This has been one of my most fulfilling responsibility and priviledge in my life as a developer. i am proud to have mentored over 25 developers and counting. Some to launch their careers and others to improve their skills. It is a responsibility i will be glad to do for as long as i can..

6. Consulting

With over 15 years of development experience, i have been enganged formally and informally as consultant on a number of projects and have enjoyed seeing companies and professionals improve with my input being a significant part of that improvement.
