Software Developer, Systems Integrator and Entrepreneur
          I have been working in the fields of Software Development, Software Systems Integration and Process Automation since 1996. In 2003, I stepped out on my own and started working for myself providing software development and systems integration services to small and medium businesses.            I am also associated with a great company called Mora Systems Limited that under the leadership of it’s Managing Director has produced innovative and outstanding products and services in the fields of GIS and Cellular based SCADA.            Teaching has always been a passion for me. I have taught at the tertiary level for many years on the subjects of programming, control systems as well as systems integration. In the last few years I found myself incorporating more and more videos into the curriculum with amazing results.            When I heard of uDemy I just could not help but sign up. With teaching in a classroom, you can reach only so many students, but with uDemy you can reach the world! I plan to publish and promote as many courses as I possibly can on the uDemy platform.  Show moreShow less
