Jaun Sachs (Bio)

With more than a decade’s experience across several development languages, Jaun’s current role sees him responsible for primary support and technical account manager of the Progress OpenEdge product suite within Africa.

It is this knowledge, together with his passion for people and commitment to making a difference, which saw Jaun elected to PUG Africa’s board earlier this year. There is no doubt that his extensive understanding of the Progress OpenEdge environment, together with other relevant technologies, will see him delivering substantial value, on both a technical and real-world scenario, to the local Progress community

One of Jaun’s key focus areas will be that of knowledge transfer and the building of product related skills within the PUG Africa region.

Today’s IT industry is constantly evolving. This is placing huge pressure on developers to remain current, with ‘communities’ fast becoming one of the best ways to accomplish this. Consequently, one of PUG Africa’s primary goals will be to facilitate the sharing of information between like-minded individuals, thereby establishing itself as the ‘hub’ and ‘go to place’ within the local Progress community.
