My name is Morné Zaayman and this is my personal blog. I’m a professional software developer and team lead working mostly with Microsoft’s web and mobile application technologies (Azure, ASP.NET, .NET Core, Entity Framework, Blazor, Xamarin etc). I’m also a Microsoft Certified: Azure Associate. I’m originally from South Africa which is where Mzansi comes from – it’s a nickname for South Africa. It comes from the isiXhosa word uMzantsi which means “South”. Bytes comes from the unit of digital information which mapped well to my interested in technology.
I am currently working on several projects:
- Ground School
A platform for student pilots that offers the best ground school courses and mock exam questions in the industry
- No Bad Surprises
The ultimate app for gift-giving and receiving. You can create your own wish list and share it with anyone. No more guessing, no more unwanted gifts, no more bad surprises 😉.
I used to be a flight instructor before I made the switch to full-time software development. During my time as a flight instructor, I saw the need for eLearning content for student pilots in South Africa. This led me to develop Ground School which currently has students all over the world using it.
Aside from software development, I also enjoy playing golf, hitting the gym (lately CrossFit) and running. I always enjoy a good braai (BBQ in South Africa).
Thanks for taking the time to visit my site. I’ll try to keep it updated with interesting content. I am also open to freelance work. If you’d like to contact me, my email address is email@example.com.
