From an early age, Dirk was interested in discovering how things worked. It is this thirst for knowledge that sparked his interest in software development and technology.

He studied at the Nelson Mandela University where he wrote software part-time to gain a better understanding of the technology. In his final year, he received a merit award for academic excellence from the NMMU.

Starting his career at a small software development house in Port Elizabeth, he moved on to EOH Applications in 2007. He spent the next 8 years writing software to integrate into SYSPRO. It was during this time that he started blogging frequently to avoid stagnating and to keep on learning.

In 2015 he joined Evolution Software developing responsive web applications. During this time he published two books on C# as well as a few eBooks.

In December of 2017, he moved into a Full Stack Developer role, working remotely from South Africa for Embrace in the UK. In 2018 he published his third book on C# 7 and .NET Core. He continues learning and sharing whenever he can. You can find him @DirkStrauss on Twitter.
