Tielman grew up on an orange farm in Clanwilliam and was watering orchards and preventing pests for most of his teens. He completed his Bachelors and Masters in Electrical Engineering at the University of Stellenbosch.
During this time, he got into programming and learnt about using new technologies to make life easier, and how to manage programming projects as they grow bigger.
After his studies, he worked at corporate and private companies, building tools that are used by corporates. He moved to Canada for a short while, where he worked remotely and learned to speak a bit of French.
Tielman is all about scaling up and preventing bugs - which goes for both programming and for farming!
