Introducing the 2018 Dariel Graduates
Asemahle is a graduate software developer, who is excited about kick-starting her career with Dariel. She holds a BSc in Computer Science & IT and a BCom Honours in Information Systems & IT from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. She pursued her dream career due to her fascination with the endless possibilities computers provide, when given the ‘right’ instructions. She believes that Dariel has the best organisational culture and it offers opportunities to learn and grow on a professional and personal level.
Besides coding, she enjoys spending time with friends, watching movies and enjoys reading magazines… going straight to the ‘good laughs’ column because believes laughter makes the soul dance. She usually ends her day playing 30 Seconds with a group of friends, having fun, building memory formation and improving cognitive skills.
Ross is an Electrical Engineering (Information) graduate from WITS. He is a passionate problem solver, whether that be a software development task, a Sudoku puzzle or the best way to win in a board game.
Ross enjoys playing sport, and is always up for any type of game. In his spare time, he plays video games with friends or enjoys a good book, particularly from the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genres.
#Come to the geek side, we have coffee, LANs and board games.
Keegan holds a BSc in Computer Science and Software Engineering from the University of Johannesburg. After working for a year, he ventured off in search for the next step in his career to develop himself and his skills.
Keegan enjoys spending his free time either working on personal projects, playing FIFA, working out at gym and going on adventures with his friends. Such a busy guy, but he always makes time for his daily scheduled meeting with his pillow. Yes, sleep time is sacred. He is a big sports fan who enjoys watching and participating in various sports. He is a big supporter of Blue Bulls and Springbok rugby as well as Manchester United and the German national soccer teams.
Overall, Keegan is such a stand-up guy, he always has time to decline any stand-up meeting. At times he can be the loudest and most talkative person in the room and other times he can be the quietest, you just never know which Keegan you going to get.
# But it was working this morning!
Charl is a pretty cool guy. He finds the concept of home automation fascinating and has written code for Sphero robots. He plays guitar on occasion and is a massive Star Wars fan boy. All round chill guy with a sweet looking beard. Charl enjoys playing video games in his free time. Technology-wise he finds Python and Big Data fascinating topics. He is of the impression that Metallica is the best live act in the world and often listens to music.
# “Hey google” – Finish him!
Mc Arthur holds a BSc Information Technology from the University of Johannesburg. He is a conundrum in that he has a wickedly dry sense of humour, while being quiet and shy. He loves participating in (and championing) non-monetary dares, playing Chess (mostly Bullet and Blitz games), doing Crossword Puzzles, reading novels (All Hail David Baldacci!) and watching TV Shows. He is a fast problem solver and likes coming up with creative solutions to the problems he is tasked to solve. He has been dubbed as a senpai of perfectionism and procrastination (Yes, definitely a weird combination).
Luca is an all-round fun loving guy who likes to make really bad puns at which people can’t help but laugh (most of the time). He calls it “pun-ishment”. He enjoys reading, PC gaming, making people smile, watching movies, tackling coding problems and making people smile. He’s also very competitive and enjoys participating in most sports while making people smile. Creativity flows through his veins and he really enjoys coming up with unique and effective solutions to problems.
His Catholic faith and his family are the most important aspects of his life and he is convinced that the greatest music era was the 50’s. Luca can often be heard telling others that he is the most handsome man he has ever met… and the most humble. Once you make friends with him, your life will never be the same again.
