Side project:

Like a lot of my side projects, was built out of a personal need. Golfedout was intended to track the variety of golf courses I have played over the last 6 or 7 years since I took up the game a little more seriously. When I started the project it was a simple list of courses, and then evolved into a more elaborate application which allowed you to follow other golfers, partake in a leader board, view course details, such as architects or addresses, and I also added a gamification component. Another aspect I was interested in, is how many of the top 100 golf courses have I played? How many PGA tour courses have I played? In the end I believe I may have made Golfedout considerably over engineered than others might have wished 🙂 If you are a avid golfed or interested, here is a link to my profile: read more

Web App:

Shortly before Charlotte being born, I recognized that there were quite a few US websites focused on support moms going through their journey of pregnancy, and the early years of of raising kids. Trying to emulate this for the South African market and emerging internet base, I built

The page title was “Helping South African Moms with pregnancy, recipes, food, forums, safety and kids”


Technology wise the product was built using the community platform Dolphin, from Boonex. It is a great product and had multiple social media aspects available out of the box along with features like forums, blogs, groups and news, which was perfect for launching this community. read more

Web App: RSSza

RSSza was a website I developed in 2007, it was essentially a content/link aggregator which periodically ran pulling in news and information from RSS feeds. It was probably the first web app I had developed which got some traction and I received some good, and constructive comments from folks on various areas of improvement. After some feedback the site was considered “information overload”, I let users create a profile and customize their feeds.

I shut the site down in around 2011.
