About the Author

Deon Slabbert
Deon Slabbert

I started out as a pharmacist in the 1980's and started programming in 1988. In 1995 I became a full-time software developer and have been developing enterprise software applications ever since thus bringing 30 years of experience to the table. Over that time, I have developed applications for the medical, pharmaceutical, emergency services, financial and insurance industries.
