Simon Katz

Developer Development
Simon

I have been programming since 1997, building web content since 1998 and I studied Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UCT. I have used many different programming languages and platforms from assembler to electronics to C to HTML to databases to scripting languages, but I enjoy working with data and the accessibility and dynamic nature of the web compliments this well (available from many different devices and that can adapt to the underlying data) . As an engineer I approach things in a left brained manner and like to know how things work / what is going on behind the scenes that most people cannot see and attention to details that most people gloss over or are unaware of.
