WELCOME TO THE TEAM!
2015 has been an exciting year for Axis Interactive.
Not only have we “set-up camp” in new offices at the Abrey Eco Park in Kloof, but have also welcomed 4 new team members.
Gaetane le Grange joins us as an experienced software developer. Having excelled academically at school and being awarded 7 distinctions in her on-going study of her Bachelors Degree in Development Studies, Gaetane is a dedicated, hard-working team member. She is up-to-date on the latest development trends and tools such as responsive design, responsive images, optimization, LESS CSS, SVG, Twitter, Bootstrap and Joomla. She has an excellent eye for detail, form and colour and much of her website development work has included corporate rebranding for her clients. She has also completed a range of projects utilizing object-oriented PHP, MYSQL, jQuery, HTML, AJAX and CSS3.
When Gaetane isn’t coding, designing or developing she devotes her time to her two children, takes her dog Pigeon for walks and… codes (for fun).
