About

Hi, I’m Pieter van der Westhuizen. I'm a professional freelance web & mobile developer and I've been blogging on https://www.mythicalmanmoth.com since May 2007. You'll find in this pages some of my chronicles from full-time paid employee to freelance developer.

A lot of what you'll read here might be outdated and some formatting and/or display issues might've crept in with the migration from Wordpress to Hashnode.

Mythical Man Moth?

I’ve called this blog Mythical Man Moth because I’ve once referred to Frederick P. Brooks’ book as “Mythical Man Moth”, instead of “Mythical Man Month”. The joke stuck and I thought it would be a good name for my blog. I’ve also lived to see the lessons taught in that book to be true and seen the truth in Brooks’ law.

Thank you for reading!
