Christopher Ryan Delport
Very few people in this world get to wake up and be excited to do what they do
for a living. I am happy to be one of them :) Even after 15 years in the
programming using the latest technologies and industry standards.
My experience ranges from developing large scale applications in
applications with AngularJS and NodeJs.
I am a huge fan of TDD and Agile methodologies and work extremely well in a
fast paced environment. Also, I firmly believe as a programmer you can never
learn enough so am constantly improving my skillset and love to share my
knowledge with others.
Over the years I have developed projects in various industries (tourism, retail,
real estate, gaming, transport, colleges, photography, engineering) and have
worked with some major brands like Chevrolet, Isuzu, Ackermans,
SA National Parks Board, Disney, Bells, Johnnie Walker and Harley Davidson.

Received award for development of
Northern Cape Tourism Authority's website.
The project took careful planning as it had to accommodate all service
providers in the local tourism industry as well as be efficient to use for tourists. One notable feature was its custom built search engine (PERL)
featured site of the week
Received award for best multimedia
website - http://clockmedia.co.za
The project took over four months
to complete and involved everything
from sound engineering, photography, 3D modeling, design, illustration to programming interactive features in the user interface.
Development assistance as a freelance developer / contractor for the agency on various projects. Common tasks included:
Outsourced development of front-end and back-end applications. I assisted Web Cape with development projects in industries such as dentistry, tourism, transport, vending machines, paintball, property management and colleges.
I have worked with Ryan for 3 years now, and
we have undertaken various projects and
implementations during that time. I must say
that Ryan is incredibly friendly and easy to
work with, able to communicate well and
work alone without supervision whilst
producing impeccable results. His skillset far
surpasses his ocial title, and even when
tasked with technology out of his scope, he
always learns and provides results time and
time again. Any organisation lucky enough to
have Ryan will have a strong team player and
a creative technical resource.
