I code because I can action the changes and ideas I want to see in the world to impact people's lives in a positive way. I value people over work and believe strongly that there is value in doing something thoroughly. I help teams solve problems in simple ways and mentor people to challenge the status quo and themselves.

I am a Principle Services Engineer at GoDaddy, currently working on the API for GoDaddy Studio, which is a digital design app. I love growing vegetables, working with my hands and gaming on occasion. You can find me @etbal or linkedin.com/in/etiennemarais and I sometimes write blog posts etiennemarais.co.za. You can also ask me anything (within reason).
