Hi, My name is Jaco Thiart, I am a programmer and engineer in developing software solutions as a software engineer, I'm a thinker all day, and I believe I can make a change in our world, with my experience in software programming, microcontroller programming, website programming and app programming. My company, called Jaco Thiart Engineering is based in Cape Town, South Africa. I was born and raised in a town called, Vredenburg, West Coast, South Africa. I do have a PS3 and a cat, called Katryn. Family to me is very important. I write various programs, when it is not game programming it is general software programs I program and fit into my programmer schedule. When I am not busy with a program I am programming. Here is the chess game I programmed, so what are you waiting for, make your move, and please feel free to contact me regarding software development outsourcing business.


National Diploma: Computer Systems: CPUT (2004)
BTECH degree: Computer Systems: CPUT (2008)

I love software development, any aspect of it, whether it is using inheritance, composition, polymorphism or creating a well-thought algorithm.
I'm technical and do apply attention to detail and object orientation to real life objects.


In my spare time I:

Write 2d & 3d games(tetris2d, tetris3d, chess2d, chess3d) on web development frameworks and languages.

So yes, I program in various languages and frameworks, I especially love low level programming languages where I can research and instrument with inheritance, composition and polymorphism. From my university days in Cape Town South Arica, I was intrigued by sprites and how pixelated sprites can be the cause of the whole gaming area. Low level was my starting point, but nowadays I'm also intrigued with programming with fast effective high level program languages.
