About Roop

Rupert (Roop) Meyer

In the early 1990s, Roop embraced the Internet when it was still a nascent technology. As the field was evolving rapidly, he had to teach himself nearly everything about the new protocols and programming languages, as there were no books, courses or teachers available at the time. Although his university education was of little use in this new era, Roop's determination and curiosity helped him stay ahead of the curve.

Roop's hard work paid off as he gained recognition from esteemed peers around the world. He became the top web designer and developer in South Africa, according to the SA Web Charts. This achievement only fueled his passion for the Internet and inspired him to take on bigger projects for both corporate and government clients. Nevertheless, he also enjoys working on smaller projects and websites for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

His passion burns on ...

Spec. Writing

"The old adage, "failing to plan is planning to fail," rings true in the world of software development, regardless of the project's size. To ensure success, it's crucial to establish clear Business Requirement, Functional Requirement, and Technical Requirement Specifications.

Roop can assist you in creating these documents, providing you with a roadmap and milestones that are both achievable and measurable. With Roop's guidance, you can be confident that your project will be well-planned and executed, resulting in the outcomes you desire.

User Interface Design

While it's true that many user interfaces can be purchased off the shelf, they may not always be the best fit for your project. At first glance, these interfaces may look attractive, but they may not be user-friendly or appropriate for your specific needs.

Creating a successful user interface requires a great deal of consideration and expertise, including knowledge of psychology. Roop has the experience to help you choose the best interface for your project, or to design and develop a UI from scratch that is tailored to your specific needs.

With Roop's guidance, you can be confident that your user interface will be both visually appealing and user-friendly, resulting in a positive user experience for your customers.


Over the course of his career, Roop has become adept at using a wide range of programming languages, from the early days of Fortran and Cobol to modern languages like HTML, JavaScript, and PHP, as well as everything in between. His knowledge of programming languages is matched by his expertise in database management.

Roop has worked on a variety of projects, ranging from small brochure-like websites to full enterprise solutions for major organizations, such as Exclusive Books, Transnet, and the South African Government, among others. With his breadth of experience, Roop can provide solutions for any project, no matter its complexity or scale.

Project Management

Roop has an impressive track record of project management, having overseen a wide variety of development projects throughout his career. Among the largest of these was the Control Centre solution developed and managed for Transnet Ports Authority.

This was a major undertaking that required a great deal of expertise and management skills. Roop also oversaw the development and project management of the Analytical Investigation Management System (AIMS) for AFIS, which was another significant project.

These experiences have given Roop the ability to manage projects of all sizes and complexities, and he has developed a reputation for delivering high-quality results on time and within budget.


Implementing a new solution in the workplace involves more than just making it work in the real world. There are also supporting documents to create, training to provide, and change management to consider.

Roop has extensive experience in managing successful implementations, and understands the importance of attention to detail in every aspect of the process. He knows how to create the necessary documentation, and can provide the training and support needed to ensure a smooth transition to the new solution.

With Roop's guidance, you can be confident that your implementation will be a success, and that your team will be fully equipped to make the most of your new technology.


Roop's passion for computer science and programming led him to pursue a career in this field, but he also had a strong interest in journalism. In fact, he had received a job offer from the Daily News in the early eighties, but ultimately decided to follow the path of computer science and programming instead.

However, this decision did not prevent Roop from writing computer-related columns for the Daily News and Sunday Tribune in the early nineties. His ability to write about technical topics in a clear and accessible way has made him a sought-after writer, and he can provide you with these same skills.

Whether you need technical documentation or clear, engaging content for your website, Roop can help you communicate effectively with your audience.
