Theuns Coetzee

Designer & Developer

I am a self-taught multi-skilled designer/developer that has always followed my passion for creative outlet. I cannot resist to invent, improve and tweak whatever I’m undertaking and as such fell in love with development, design, photography and cooking.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned is that quality supersedes quantity and thus my first priority is to ensure a stable and secure platform.

Whatever you do, do it passionately!

  • Gardening… for its tranquility and the gift to create. There is, after all, no tastier food than that harvested through labour of love.
  • Woodwork… for even when a tree’s spirit has moved on it still has a story to tell.
  • Provide solutions through WordPress to the Community.
  • Create plugins and custome themes for a better user experience.
  • Raise WordPress community awareness.
  • Improve my PHP, Javascript and CSS/Sass skills.
  • Learn Python for data analysis.
