My name is Nick Masao. I’m a computer programmer, filmmaker and writer. I created and maintain Reportbase
, the online school management software for Tanzanian schools. I started a software development company called Arusha Software
in 2008. I’ve been writing software professionally since 2003 and filmmaking as a passion since 1999 and professionally since 2013.
I’ve made several documentaries, an action feature film and an action short film. I write, produce, shoot and edit my own stuff, but I can work with others if the content is compelling.
More about my films here.
I am a Microsoft MCP. I hold several certifications including Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) and Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) .NET Framework. I’m a full stack software developer, which means I work efficiently at all layers of the application development life-cycle including the server, network and hosting environments, database layer and data modelling, business logic, API layer, Action layer, MVC, User Interface and User Experience and Customer and Business needs analysis.
I have an old software blog here
which you can visit to see where I came from. I also have a YouTube
channel. Please visit that to see some of my film work. You can subscribe to my blog’s RSS
feed or follow me on Google+
, and Facebook
I’m always looking for exciting new challenges and projects, so if you need an application built, help with architecture or just .NET development in general, please get in touch with me.
