I'm a Bachelor of Commerce graduate, fell inlove with ICT years back with VB5. Used Pick & System Builder to create a windows app. Very curious, developed my first web database app called Project.Show using ExtJS. Published on Google Play Store, learned JQuery Mobile, a project manager at best. My first intranet app eFas with MySQL.

Fear closes people to a lot of things and we hold ourselves back being held by it. Thus the sooner you believe you can't do something, the sooner everything will work towards that belief. Believe in yourself at all times because you can do anything you set your mind to it!

I have a very beautiful woman and four kids, the best joys in the world. East London, South Africa is currently home.

Hello my name is Kris. I’m here because I am passionate about helping non-techie people to overcome their fear of learning SQL.

I know what it is like to not know where to start or whether the time spent learning is worth the effort. That is why I am here to help you to:
- Get started in an easy to follow step-by-step manner.
- Use your time wisely so you focus on what is important to learn to get the most value from your time.
- Answer your questions. Really! Just post a comment and I’ll respond. I’m here to help.

It wasn’t long ago that I was helping a colleague with some reporting. She didn’t know where to start and soon got overwhelmed and lost as she didn’t know SQL.

I felt really bad, as she was under pressure to get some summary information to her boss, the built-in reports were falling short, and to make them better would require her to know SQL. At that time that seemed impossible! It in dawned on me, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Then I discovered a way for anyone with the desire to easily learn SQL. I worked with my co-worker, started to teach her what I learned and soon she was able to write reports and answer her boss’ questions without getting stressed or ploughing hours into manipulating data in Excel.

It hasn’t always been easy. Sometimes the information seems abstract or too conceptual. In this case I’ve found out that a visual explanation is best. I really like to use diagrams or videos to explain hard-to-grasp ideas.

Having video, pictures, and text really help to reinforce the point and enable learning.

And now I want to help you get the same results.

I am a professional developer, but I really create software because it's fun. I've always been interested in deconstructing complex systems, and software engineering has proven to be an inexhaustable supersystem of such systems. In the past I've also spent time focusing on music composition, audio engineering, electronics, game design, history, and philosophy.

My strongest languages are English and C#, in fact I'm a Microsoft Certified Professional for "Programming in C#". I do not have any certifications for English, so please trust me there. I've spent a lot of time working on Windows desktop applications, particularly for interacting with SQL Server or automating Microsoft Office programs, using technologies such as C#, VB.NET, VBA, T-SQL, WinForms, WPF, ADO.NET, the MS Office PIA's, ExcelDNA, EPPlus, and Crystal Reports. I've also done some web development using JavaScript, HTML, CSS, TypeScript, ASP.NET, WCF, jQuery, and requirejs. I am very interested in functional programming (F#, Haskell, Clojure), and try to use C# and JavaScript in a "functional" way at times, but I haven't had the opportunity to use a functional language for a serious project yet.
