Bio

Hello, World!

I am Mike - a full-stack developer and web designer that has been an active developer for over 4 years and a daily user for more than a decade. I have been a tutor here on Wyzant for over a year, previously focusing on static front-end and server technologies using MySQL, PHP, JS, HTML and CSS.

Hello, World!

I am Mike - a full-stack developer and web designer that has been an active developer for over 4 years and a daily user for more than a decade. I have been a tutor here on Wyzant for over a year, previously focusing on static front-end and server technologies using MySQL, PHP, JS, HTML and CSS.

I recently took a short break from Wyzant to focus on learning and practicing new methods using modern technology to create client-side applications and web-apps using advanced frameworks and libraries such as React, static generation using Next, as well as moving from PHP and MySQL to cloud-based hosting and deployment with GitHub, Vercel, Netlify and Heroku. Now I am back again to share what I have learned!

I can relate to getting stuck on an issue and falling behind on my schedule, especially with the fast-paced classes and courses that don't always cover topics that are most likely new to many developers. I would be happy to walk through your project with you, determine what can be improved or where the problems are and help you to explore new methods and practice them. There are also many other resources I can recommend that can help you practice and improve in your free time. The massive online community has helped me in countless ways and I hope to pass on all that I have learned, as well as the fun I had along the way!

Online content and viewership has increased drastically over the past decade, and web development has become a necessary component of academic certificates and degrees to serve today and tomorrow's professional and personal needs.
Because of my thorough understanding of web design and the related languages and programs, I can easily explain processes, work along with you on your project and understand issues with your code structure or any difficulties you may be having. I can help you successfully reach your goals by increasing your level of skills and knowledge - and therefore more confidence in your code.

Contact me if you have any questions or need some help!

Subjects

Computer

CSS,

CSS

Years of experience using HTML / CSS and extensive understanding of its functions allow for the creation of fluid and functional templates, websites and interfaces. Through years of programming experience i have developed methods that are simple, well tested and reliable. The use of GPU accelerated rendering ensures not only higher, but also more consistent frame rates and response times of media and animated objects. Media queries and CSS grids maintain function and appearance of web applications across the broad range of computer systems and mobile devices.
HTML,

HTML

I have been a front-end developer for almost five years with a focus on static sites using HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. Many of my early projects focused on these core skills and have improved over time. Over the past year, I have changed my focus to server and client-side rendered applications using Javascript and Javascript frameworks and libraries like React and Next.js as well as modern code management and deployment methods. As an active developer, I have learned a lot from the community like new tools and methods to improve my workflow and code more efficiently and effectively.
JavaScript,

JavaScript

I have spent the past few years learning and gaining experience with JavaScript and JS frameworks like React and Nextjs. During this time I have created many performant, data-driven and user-focused applications utilizing node, express, React, and many other packages and programs. Many of these applications have been deployed to AWS, Heroku and Vercel. The many cycles of design, development, deployment and testing have offered a great deal of experience and exposure to the lifecycle of websites, web apps, PWA's and native apps.
PHP,

PHP

The first half of my 10+ years of my development experience was based around creating real-time data-driven websites using PHP and MySQL. During this time I much of my effort was dedicated to making performant and accessible sites that utilized common and repeatable design patterns such as the MVC pattern, especially when connecting to external services and data sources. Testing and proving the efficacy and efficiency of applications is very important and is a skill I have acquired through extensive trial and error while developing with PHP.
Web Design,

Web Design

During my 10+ years as a developer, I have gained great insights and methods for achieving usable and intuitive designs for web and native applications. With experience using design systems and applications, designing and prototyping a beautiful applications has become streamlined and repeatable. I can advise users on how to create interfaces that follow recommended guidelines such as accessibility and usability while creating a modern and beautiful design.

Excellent tutor, super helpful

Michael is a great tutor if you are in need of help with JavaScript. He helped me organize my logic and make sense of how to construct my functions sensibly. I was also very grateful for the introduction to JS docs which will be immensely helpful in the future.

Excellent

I worked with Michael on a React Application. The entire time I felt like I was talking to a mentor who was walking me through complex issues and answering my questions. If you have a JavaScript or React question. This is your guy!!!!
