I have been working with Open Source Software (OSS) for a number of years, having mastered a number of different applications, such as Mambo, Joomla, Moodle and osCommerce, amongst others.
While a technical staff at the University of Zululand, I tutored students in website computing modules, which enables them to develop and manage websites using one of these systems.
As the Moodle webmaster at UZ, I was actively engaged in a research project, with colleagues looking at the use of OSS in higher education.
I would love to help you find, customise and implement the best open source solution for your activities and interests, empowering you as the web manager for your enterprise.
With our extensive network of website developers and assistants, we offer website project management and consulting, from scoping the job, through to sourcing suitable quotes, supervising service providers, enlisting website content writers, search engine optimisation and internet marketing services for those who do not have the time nor the inclination to take a hands on approach.
Most recently we founded the Joomla SA Portal, started the Learn Joomla initiative and pioneered some Joomla!Day events locally.
Next is some Moodle based advocacy that we have identified as necessary in South Africa, starting with the Moodle SA Portal.
Onto Orphans and Vulnerable Children - we have started an Orphan Network for Southern Africa, and an organisation to enable and support the growing incidence of abandoned babies, through a non profit organisation called iKhaya Likababa. We are busy establishing an International Orphan Network (ION) that networks people from South Africa, Congo, Canada, America, the United Kingdom, Kuwait and other areas.
Working with the World Health Organisation (WHO) we are helping to establish WHO as the leading internet publisher on health topics in the African Region.
