My name is Sabelo Simelane, I am based in Johannesburg, South Africa. I am very passionate about software and I love solving real-life problems using software and IOT.
I have been writing software for about 20 years now. Whenever I wrote software, I always wanted to solve a real-life problem. Back in the day when car mp3 players were not available; I remember rigging up my first car with a whole PC that I controlled using a numeric keypad. It was a fully functional PC running Windows and a program I had written in Borland Delphi.
Over the years I have written a number of systems, to solve a number of issues I was experiencing at the time. From personal finance, fitness, online journal etc across multiple platforms, like web, mobile to embedded systems. Right now, I have gotten involved in IOT and have written a system that runs my whole house, controlling the gate, geysers, pool, underfloor heating, lights, alarm etc.
I wrote Snippet Manager out of the same consciousness…to solve a real life problem. I started out saving my code snippets on a wiki, then moved them to Microsoft OneNote. All these had their shortcomings so I decided I would write my own online code snippet manager. I did check out a few that existed but they were either too basic or too cluttered…hence the clean and simple interface on Snippet Manager.
