About Berrisfords IT
Its About sharing what I have Learned
It all started way back in the late ’70s while I was in the Police force in South Africa coding offender fingerprints to be entered into a central database, which was the first in Africa, and the technology bug bit me. Since then I have programmed, analyzed, trained, tutored, business owned and managed my way from Africa to New Zealand and now in Canada.
My training started as a COBOL programmer way back in 1978 while in the Police Force and I have never looked back, from designing software to owning my own Microsoft training center in South Africa, to managing a call center in New Zealand. I have the experience you need. And I have seen Penguins!
Technology has helped me in many instances as well. Before the likes of Skype I was in SA and stayed 2000 kilometers from Mom & Dad and only saw them once or twice a year if lucky. With the advent of the internet and with me now in New Zealand, I would speak to the them on skype at least once a week and they could see my photographs of hikes on the same day that I was in a forest somewhere fighting off Saber-toothed Tigers.
Having over 35 years of experience with these fancy boxes called computers and smart devices and having been a tutor in 3 different countries, I offer all this to you and more and as I said before, the lure of home-brewed coffee does wonders for the little grey cells.
