Farm boy, coder, gamer
Like most good software developers, Johan Van Rhyn started off by making his computer do things that it wasn’t designed to do. “At age 12, I was given a computer that didn’t have any games, which left me no choice but to learn to make the machine do what I wanted.” Johan, who studied at Technikon Pretoria (now the Tshwane University of Technology), is a senior developer at BrightRock and has over 20 years’ experience. He loves working with the great team at BrightRock and says they made him feel welcome from the get go. “What I love about my job is being part of this team, being able to use my skills to help build systems for BrightRock, all the while learning and growing.” Johan loves writing code and playing Xbox games in his spare time.
