Kyle Champion

Software Developer
Kyle's Bio
Throughout Kyle’s life, he has always been drawn towards computers. Their intricate and complex components fascinated him; he would take them apart, and then try and put them back together. The internet was an especially interesting place that was filled with a variety of information and strange communities. At 14 years of age, he studied a 1000 page manual on Java 2, to write games on Linux because he wasn’t as cool as the other kids. With the help and support from his two brothers Kyle really dived into software development.

In his early 20’s after some forays into other areas of study, Kyle finally settled on completing a certificate in graphic design, which he used as a springboard to enter the exciting world of web development.

Kyle has a demonstrational history of working in the IT and services industry. He has a strong skill set especially within .NET, C#, SQL, Javascript and user interface design. He has worked on database driven web applications for clients such as Berntel (Pty)Ltd, Standard Bank and Investec. He has experience with supporting existing projects including work for Nedbank and Vitality. He has also delved into mobile development integrated with Sage Pastel. Kyle’s strength within the industry comes from his all-round adaptability with software and the web.

– Certificate in Advanced Media Design and Technology.

Umlindi Regional Manager
Adriaan's Bio
Started adult life swatting Computer Science, being a future developer. Life had its own choices, so ended up as an Electrical Engineer, then got the opportunity to actually be a developer…. Until the company ran dry. Systems administrator was my next venture, as I have been involved with that since puberty and had some experience. Then B-rad got hold of my CV and he introduced me to SharePoint… the rest is history. Here I am today.
