About Me.

Hey there! I’m Michael. I’m a developer based in Melbourne, Australia. I’m passionate about experimenting and refining my skills in order to be great at what I do. I hope others can learn from what I write about here on my blog.

I have an extremely varied career background:

Technical Experience

Non-Technical Experience

My Side Project

I’m currently working on a web application for options trading (which is one of my hobbies in my spare time). It’s a chance for me to attempt building something that I’m passionate about because I’m building it for myself as the customer. I don’t really know if I’d call it a ‘startup’, but rather, a project that I care about a lot and that I eventually would like to monetise one day when I believe it’s ready.

In a nutshell

Every day is a new learning for me. I’ve come to accept that I will never know everything and working with teammates together to solve an issue is a far better way of being a good developer than doing everything on your own. I realised that I want to maintain a good balance of learning on the job and using my personal time to learn, too, through formal and informal methods. I love what I do and I want to keep mastering my craft.

I have so many ideas and I’m never bored, however, one thing is certain: I want to keep learning, keep reading and keep writing. I want to help others learn what I learned and hopefully this blog does that for future readers.
