Hi there. I’m Nevi-me, better known by my real name, Neville.
I will be a qualified Chartered Accountant at the end of 2013, but will be working partly out of my profession in order to try out other interesting vocations.
I am completing my training articles with a SAICA accredited training office at the end of 2013.
I was bred at The University of Johannesburg in the period 2007 – 2010. I have completed:
- BCom Accounting Hons (2010)
- BCom Accounting (2009)
I am currently considering studying a Masters in International Accounting or Financial Management. However, I’ve recently been considering starting from scratch with a degree in Maths or Stats, doing Actuarial Sciences would work if I have the time, but I am not so keen on becoming an actuary.
I am starting a new degree with UNISA from 2014. Have considered Computer Science and Mathematics, or Mathematics and Statistics. I plan on completing this qualification by the end of 2017.
I’ve had a keen interest in computers since I was first introduced to them. I couldn’t initially study IT, so I decided to learn what I wanted on my own. I’ve used a handful of programming languages, almost all of them towards building websites.
I now spend most of my hours zoned in my room working on projects. I have spent most of those hours learning some technologies and programming languages.
Most of my time’s spent playing around with Node.js, mongoDB and related technologies. For production purposes though I am starting to learn Python, Ruby and Java. If mongoDB treats me well I’ll dump SQL for it as often as possible.
I have a keen interest in building optimisation models, both from a financial management perspective and for non-finance related disciplines.
