Guest Speakers

Shalina NaickerShalina Naicker

Shalina is currently working as a software developer at Open Box Software After completing her Bsc Computer Science degree at the University of KZN, Shalina started her career in Quality Assurance and was soon intrigued by the mysteries and complexity of software development. After 2 years, she sought opportunities to skill up on current development technologies such as asp.net& c#, and soon crossed over, where she finally found her niche.

Shalina describes the feeling of getting a piece of code to work after hours of frustration and countless debugging efforts, as sweet triumphant victory. This, along with her desire to make a positive impact in people’s daily lives, is her driving force as a developer.
