Loki Taljaard

Johannesburg, South Africa

Lead Developer & Blockchain SME

    Polyglot coder and general language/platform agnostic (using the right tools for the task makes more sense to me than bending the task to fit the tools). Loves coding on/for different platforms for different reasons - each one has its own nuances and peculiarities that give each their very distinct characters. Background is very diverse which gives me the great advantage of having insight from various angles of a business challenge and different sides of the board room table. This enable a passion for integrating dissimilar systems into a harmonious whole, which is extremely satisfying.

Outside of designing secure systems and improving the Cyber Resilience capabilities of Blue chip clients, James enjoy cycling and breaking computers. Security by design and privacy through practice is my mantra. “A breach is inevitable, it's how you respond to it that matters”.
