                 Hi, and welcome!

                 You’re reading the beta version of “The Web Bible”, a directoy of South African
                 web professionals and web companies.

                 This guide was created to help connect those who can make online magic
                 happen with those who need it to happen for their business or individual

                 The guide is in a beta release, which is another way of saying that a far more
                 comprehensive version will be released shortly, as soon as all the information is
                 collated and edited. Basically, I am using this release to show you, and others,
                 of the potential of a guide like this.

                 To that end,
                 • If you are an individual who wants to be listed in this guide, please submit
                     your details on www.WhoCanHelpMe.co.za. The listing is free.

                 •   If you are a company who wants to be listed in this guide, there is more
                     information on www.WhoCanHelpMe.co.za. The listing is R1,500 per year.

                 •   If you are a reader of the guide, and are looking to hire a company or
                     individual for some online work, please let me know how this guide could
                     make that easier. I know it is far from a perfect product...yet!

                 Also, please note that a listing in this guide should not be considered a
                 recommendation of the individual or the company. As a web strategist, I have
                 worked with many of the people listed here, or know them personally, but
                 I cannot vouch for their work. Any suspect listings, or those who show an
                 obvious disregard for business ethics will be removed, but you are encouraged
                 to make your own investigations.

                 Thanks for reading,
                 Eve Dmochowska

                                             design practice is based in creativity, analysis and

             My Location (Town)              Sydenham, Johannesburg

             My area of Expertise            I am an Adobe Certified Expert in Flash CS3 Profes-
                                             sional, Flex 3 & AIR. My areas of expertise include
                                             Flash, Flex & AIR development with advanced integra-
                                             tion between the aforementioned and PHP, MySQL
                                             and Apache. I am a Flash Platform Consultant based
                                             in Johannesburg and I love what I do.

             My past work                    I have worked on several projects that involved ad-
             projects                        vanced integration between Flash and PHP & MySQL,
                                             which also required customization at every stage to
                                             fulfill the clients’ needs. I have a deep understanding
                                             of the Flash Platform (Flash, Flex & AIR) and this allows
                                             me to solve most problems presented to me.
                                             My most notable and complex project is Pixelock

             A bit about how I               I’m a young, passionate developer and I love what I
             work                            do (and I do it for about 16 hours a day!). I work from
                                             home, usually with Pink Floyd or 702 blaring in the
                                             background. I often help old colleagues and ac-
                                             quaintances with their Flash-related problems during
                                             the day. I love to teach and I often give comprehen-
                                             sive Flash training courses when they’re requested.
                                             I love Philosophy, Psychology, the study of Cognition,

             A bit about how I               I love to get the best out of people and having held
             work                            many management roles in the last 30 years I realised
                                             my success was entirely dependent on those I worked
                                             with. Treating everyone as an adult really helps as
                                             does trusting people to do the right thing and en-
                                             couraging people to let you know when there are
                                             problems. Coming across Agile was a real revelation
                                             to me as many of the behavioural beliefs I hold are
                                             embraced in Agile and allows for individuals to learn
                                             and improve.

                                             make people think ‘this is really great, thanks’. It could

                                             to vital gen. Or it could be coming up with beguiling-
                                             ly relevant and entertaining ideas for a regular pod-
                                             cast that builds an audience, gives people something
                                             they love (and certainly won’t get on our mediocre
                                             radio stations) and puts that brand right in people’s
                                             ears for long periods of time. The idea is that we also
                                             give customers a chance to talk back and it turns into
                                             that glorious ‘markets are conversations’ thing we’re
                                             all over these days.

             My past work                    I am radio producer by trade (which is why I can be
             projects                        rude about South African radio). I worked for the BBC
                                             in London before coming to South Africa to work
                                             for SAfm and then 702. I went freelance in 2002 as a
                                             writer, producer and media trainer. I started Podcart
                                             in 2007 because I could see how much value there
                                             would be for companies in providing consumers with
                                             the kind of audio content I am passionate about mak-
                                             ing. Since then I have created good stuff for, amongst
                                             others, Old Mutual, Woolworths, UCT, Taj Hotels,
                                             Cape Town Routes Unlimited and Stellekaya Wines. I
                                             started and still produce the Mail & Guardian weekly
                                             podcast. I also train print journalists in the mysterious
                                             ways of getting good audio. You’ll loads of examples
                                             on the Podcart site.

             projects                        as a freelance Web Producer, a consultant Content
                                             Strategist, and spent 4 years working as a Project and

                                             I’m a bit of a structure-freak; I believe even blissful
                                             chaos has its own symmetry of sorts and so I like to
                                             work as creatively as possible, but always with some
                                             basic structure and format in mind.
                                             To illustrate: for me, CONTEXT + CREATIVITY + EVI-

                                             I also do consultancy work on both a once-off or
                                             retainer basis.
