Jeff graduated from Witwatersrand University with a degree in electrical engineering, and has been involved in Internet technology all his professional life, but with a strong commercial bent. He started his career at Telkom in 1994, working on the initial Internet infrastructure team and managing aspects of the Johannesburg Beltel installation. Between stints at Sprint (which became UUNET which became Verizon Business), where he designed and implemented new Internet products and services, Jeff Fletcher founded Antfarm Networking Technologies, South Africa’s first streaming and webcasting company. He returned to the corporate world in 2004, occupying the corner office of the new product development team at Internet Solutions (then IS). Jeff now works as a Systems Engineer for Cloudera, helping customers build big data infrastructure. In 2012 he founded www.limn.co.za, a blog dedicated to the art of data visualisation and does occasional presentations for people looking to move beyond pie charts. He was shortlisted for an Information is Beautiful award in 2015.
