The two biggest sites I have helped architect and develop are contiki.com and channel5.com, each attracting tens of millions of hits per month. Prior to that, I was part of the two-man team that developed the tournament manager software used at every ATP and WTA tennis tournament around the world (except Wimbledon).
Jörg is one of the most competent software engineers I have worked with. He has a very sound knowledge of software architecture, particularly in the web-based applications. He is amongst the most experienced Ruby on Rails people in South Africa.Grant Brewer
So far I have given two intensive Rails training courses in Cape Town. They're probably more like workshops as we create an application from scratch using TDD. Each course had about four students.
I created Blinkplan, an online tool for the magazine industry to create flatplans. Last year I launched Find Help - a directory to find therapists, psychologists and social workers. A long long time ago I created AK47.tv - an online art photography magazine, which had almost 4000 subscribers.
To experiment with different technologies, I assembled
- hat.jit.su, which runs off node.js, websockets and angularjs. Hatjitsu allows you to do realtime online SCRUM Planning Poker.
- I've experimented a little with UX on the command line - and created forecast-cli to beautifully display a weather forecast in your terminal.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss any of your own future projects.
