Ockert Johannes du Preez
My passion towards computers was actually always lingering. When I started learning programming ( Qbasic ) it was as if a wildfire has ignited inside of me. That was the beginning of my programming life. Since 1998 I have learnt Visual Basic 5-6. C, C++, Visual C++ 6. Then, my second love ( just after my wife ) came .NET. I have always been an avid supporter for .NET. Not only in VB, but C# as well. Nowadays I'm playing around with Windows 8 Store development. I am a moderator as well as an article reviewer on CodeGuru. If it wasn't for CodeGuru, I wouldn't have been here today. I love helping people - it is my true calling, that is why my job as a .NET trainer in Vereeniging, South Africa, also provides me with great joy. I always try to be humble.
