Donald Pakkies

I’m a self-taught Software Developer and an Open Source maintainer from the East Rand, I started playing around with code at the age of 13 and I’ve been loving it ever since.

I come from a C# background but slowly transitioned into PHP and Nodejs over the years. In my professional career, I’ve worked in small and big teams and I’ve helped a number of companies get their products off the ground.

I’m currently learning the Imba Language and how NoSQL databases work, and I’m enjoying it so far.
