About NoFuss Solutions

Hi, I'm Ewald Horn, and I have been providing global services as a remote consultant, mostly from Cape Town, South Africa, under the trade name of NoFuss Solutions since 2004.

My passion is building business solutions, with a specific focus on startups and smaller companies. You can view my full profile here if you are interested in some background information.

While I primarily work in the mobile space, often on Android applications, I have also built iOS, web or desktop solutions, depending on what my clients required. I prefer to pick the most appropriate technologies to use after having done some investigation and discovery about what the main challenges are. These days, I often find myself building many APIs and back-end solutions to provide a more complete solution.

My most enjoyable engagements by far have been where I augmented teams by bringing skills and expertise they lacked to the table. Working with in-house teams as an external consultant can be a rewarding experience for all parties involved as it allows for the transfer of knowledge while alleviating pressure on the team. I'm really grateful for the friendships I've formed while working in this capacity with teams across many time zones.

All my work is done via remote technologies like Slack, Zoom, Skype, Trello and the cloud. I'd be happy to have a video call with you to see if there's synergy in our approaches and ways of working.

    Here's a list of some of the talks and presentations I've done over the last while.
