I specialize in TypeScript/JavaScript, React, React Native, Electron, Redux, jQuery, HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, MongoDB, MERN Stack, LAMP Stack, Linux, and more. I am most experienced and work in React/JavaScript/TypeScript code every single day. I enjoy showing the troubleshooting process in diagnosing problems so that you can better triage issues in the future!

I've been a full-time VP of Engineering/Development since 2016 and have lead teams of other React/React Native/JavaScript and PHP developers in creating software platforms. I enjoy unit testing as well as code coverage and have experience with Mocha, JUnit, Sonarqube, and Jest frameworks. In the development teams I am involved with, I act as a scrum master and enjoy leading teams through the agile process of behavior-driven development with user stories, sprint planning, retrospectives, and review.

I also have an extensive amount of experience in the AWS Amazon Web Services cloud setting up EC2s, Auto Scaling groups, Cloudfront, Cloudwatch, S3, Lambdas, DynamoDB, IAM, and more. I have experience with CodePipeline/CodeBuild/CodeDeploy, Bamboo, Azure Pipelines, Github Actions, Jenkins, and other CI/CD platforms. I am well versed in Linux, Ubuntu, RedHat, Amazon Linux, CentOS, the command line, and other server infrastructure configurations.

Our session will start with ensuring we can see/hear each other followed by you outlining your objectives for the session. You will be screen sharing and doing all the driving/typing with me as the navigator. We will likely spend the first few minutes walking thru your current code/project structure so I can become familiar, and then quickly dive into your session agenda. I am interruptible at any time you need clarification or are not fully understanding. Finally, the sessions are recordable (on Wyzant or Zoom) for you to replay and review the items covered.

Extremely experienced engineer

Matt was absolutely wonderful to learn from. He was able to help me through several problems extremely fast. I reached out to him for help to write moderately complex Jest tests in Next.js with Typescript, and he was able to help with everything I needed and very quickly without having much prior experience integrating Jest into Next.js. I recommend Matt to anyone looking for a deeper understanding of code written in JavaScript.

Blair, 1 lesson with Matt

A master at the top of his game.

I reached out to him to help me with React.js and after just a couple of sessions he's really helped me understand the basics of React. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking to upgrade their skills in React or JavaScript.

Matt is Amazing!

Matt is very knowledgeable, attentive, and patient. He is a great problem solver that will not measure efforts to help out. I had a really big issue with package dependencies with React 18 and package-lock and had tried everything I possibly could for three weeks. He solved it in less than 40 minutes. Thank you very much, Matt!

Jest Unit Testing

I’ve been working with Matt for more than 10 sessions doing jest unit testing on a serverless, node, aws lambda, react project and it’s been extremely helpful. Thank you!

Josephine, 14 lessons with Matt

Well versed in Azure Dev Ops and great teacher

Well versed in Azure Dev Ops and excellent communication skills. We put the entire hour we had scheduled to good use over zoom. Unlike many tutorials on the web, Matt was also able to teach me best practices straight from years of experience

Matt's an AWESOME tutor!

I was shocked we managed to solve my Lamba@Edge issue in a 30-minute session - I had been messing around with it for a few hours! Matt is incredibly knowledgeable about a ton of different AWS topics and I'm so pleased I found him on Wyzant. We're now setting up a deployment pipeline from GitHub to AWS and I'm stoked.

AWS DevOps

Extremely happy with Matt's help! I am always happy with his help. However, when it comes to AWS Pipelines and CI/CD I'm like a little kid lost at Six Flags Magic Mountain trying to figure out how to get the the Batman ride. (Super excited about the tech but having no idea how to get to the main destination). 🤣😂 Matt, thank you for helping me make the best use of my time! We got a ton accomplished!!😃
