Welcome, Saleem Jaffer!

Profile Information

Occupation
Entrepreneur, Developer
Who are you?
I am a software developer by profession skilled in the .NET framework and most open source languages. Enjoy working on projects that change the way people to do things here in South Africa.

A few projects currently take up some of my time (actually 90% of my time !)

Joblife
This is a project I started up in 2010. It's main aim was to be a resource for the South African Job Seeker. It has grown since then into one of the top job portals in SA and now features intelligent job search, cv database and free job alerts. Job Posting is free as well for companies.

You can check it out here .

Ikonix (AKA Ikonic IT)
This is an existing small company I bought in the beginning of this year that was previously based in Johannesburg. I always wanted to try and see if I could create a successful Online IT/Electronics Store - so this year alot of my time has been spent learning the business, it took quite a bit of effort I must say.

So if you are looking for any computer hardware or any electronics, check out Ikonix - our prices are great!

"First impressions: I like the logo. The name might not stick. How many o's m's r's was that again? The site design and layout feels a bit rough around the edges, but there is a familiarity (Twitter). I have no idea what the site…"

"I love the idea I didnt know it was a clone though. Well you also made it look reaaly much of a close everything looks the same.I have to say both sites dont look that awesome at all. Look at perfecting your UI at-least. I wont offer to help but I…"

"I think its a good idea to go local with something like this. If I were you I would approach a few local school or learning institutes to get some graduates to populate this thing. If your SEO is good (and I cant really tell yet) you can get a lot…"

"Thanks for looking guys, yes it is a clone;) However I think the idea will work here with a local payment gateway which is why I'm putting it out there!"

"Hey Kurt,   Thanks for your review man:), I really appreciate it! Regarding point 2: I think more quality gigs will start coming in the more people start using the site.   3) Money is only paid over to the seller once you are satisfied…"

"Hi Saleem,   1) I don't like to be greeted with a overlay. Gives me the feeling of advert pop-up. Maybe look into creating a  menu entry called, 'how it works' and remove the header image with the city artwork. Green text…"
