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 been an avid supporter for .NET. Not only in VB, but C# as well. 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. I was employed as a .NET trainer in Vereeniging, South Africa, which provided me with great joy. Now I work at a very dynamic software development company in Midrand, South Africa, and I am enjoying every minute of it!
