My name is Mpho Mphego. I'm a (Python) Software Engineer and currently employed by the SKA (Square Kilometer Array) / SARAO (South African Radio Astronomy Observatory)
I was previously employed by SANSA (South African National Space Agency) as an Electronic Engineer in a remote sub-Antarctic island called Marion Island, you can read up about my expedition experience here : Marion Island 71st Expedition
I am currently pursuing a Masters in Electronic/Electrical Engineering from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Cape Town.
I created this blog to keep track of all if not most of the things I'm learning. In the past couple of years or so, I started to learn a lot about different aspects of software development. I wanted to be able to track my progress and accomplishments. My goal is to, at least post something twice in a month. Hopefully I can even improve on that. I write about what I am currently learning, things that interest me by doing that I ensure that the knowledge I gain is fully retained and shared to anyone that shares the same interest as me.
I also have an old Wordpress blog, and most of the posts have been migrated to mphomphego.co.za, I have left some old traveling documented trips to Marion Island, that I'll leave such that I can have a reference to it somewhere.
If you'd like to set up a meeting with me, drop me a mail and we will schedule a meeting based on your availability.
Help feed me & my coding obsession
My open source work started as a fun hobby, but as my tools and blog got more popular, it has turned into a full-time job commitment. Except with 0 pay and no employer benefits :) I would really appreciate if you support my hard work, so that I'll be able to shop at fancy Whole Foods once in a while!
