Spelling Lessons

Early on in my working career I did telephonic and Email support for Vodacom Messaging which is run by Always Active Technologies in Kloof, South Africa. I struggled with spelling and grammar but fortunately a senior Systems Architect took a personal interest in me and often commented on my Emails offering advice, spelling and grammar corrections.

Later he was fundamental in my software development path and I will forever be grateful for the help and patience. These days I try read and learn as much as possible, this page dedicated to documenting words I have to google the meaning of and would probably struggle to spell.
