ABOUT ME

EXPERTISE
Ruby on rails expert help Ruby on Rails - 3 years experience
Worked at Groupon which used to be the largest Ruby on Rails app deployment before it was broken into micro-services. I've helped design, write, and maintain apps that were distributed across hosts and data centers. I can help you avoid developing the monolithic app from hell or help you break your existing monolith into manageable pieces. I can also help you get started in the right direction with your new Rails project.
Ruby expert help Ruby - 3 years experience
Probably my most familiar language. Ruby was the primary language I worked in during my time at Groupon. Used it everyday for several years. Ruby the trusty work horse that I go to when I need to do something quickly.
Server expert help Server - 7 years experience
I have several years experience managing Linux servers, both personally and professionally. Familiar with Ubuntu, CentOS, and CoreOS.

I've used Clojure for several projects. Good example is a file sharing application that is used to distribute and provide access control for financial reports.

Most of my experience with C# come from my work scripting in Unity, but also from developing Windows Services that communicate with custom hardware and the Unity process. Experience developing VR simulations for Oculus Rift.

I have done a fair bit of scripting in Python for system configuration management and a some other random automation tasks. I have also done some web development in Django; not as comfortable with it as I am with Rails but still cozy.

The language of the web, for better or worse. Not the sharpest knife in my drawer, but you can't do web development without knowing Javascript.

I worked with Mongo and TokuMX at Groupon. Managed cluster setup, updates, and regular maintenance and monitoring. Experience with the cluster itself and developing applications that use it.

Have been using Git for several years on a daily basis. My git-fu is pretty good.

Matt was great! Very helpful and pretty quick in understanding my issue. I'm a novice in Rails so it was wonderful to have someone explain some of the conventions I didn't understand, solve my problem, and show me a better way to do what I originally intended. Thanks, Matt!
Rich Liao Jan 09, 2015

Matthew was awesome. Quick and detailed with his responses, friendly and patient. Was a pleasure to work with.
Jason Kaye Jan 05, 2015

Matthew is really easy to work with and wastes no time - he had an answer immediately for my trickiest problems and had no problems delivering a solid answer. Thanks a lot!
Kevin Jan 05, 2015

Great advice, efficient with his time, very patient, overall just a pleasure to work with.
Brandon Jan 03, 2015

Matthew was awesome and I'd highly recommend him. He immediately jumped on the call and was able to quickly refactor some code while providing me with some pointers.
Andrew Kelley Jan 03, 2015

Matt was very friendly and patient, and solved most of my problems. We ran out of time or we'd probably have solved them all. The interface (google hangouts) caused some problems. Matt couldn't control my screen, and it was hard for him to read at his end (too small--two monitors). Changing window sizes, and toggling between them, helped somewhat. As a result, though, stuff took longer and ran up more time. Overall, my understanding of Rails has increased, and my app has progressed toward completion. Thanks, Matt!

Good teacher, helps me understand problems without doing it for me! Lets me struggle and figure things out and steps in when needed for maximum learning.
Fareez Ahmed Dec 20, 2014

zack eidman Dec 17, 2014

Great job- didn't waste anytime!
Fareez Ahmed Dec 17, 2014

Had a problem with importing and heroku. Matt helped me to find the error within the database very quickly. Great help and will definitely hire him again.
Oliver Dec 10, 2014

Awesome help, this guy is advanced in his understanding of Rails. I've mentored with a couple different Rails mentors here and Matthew is in a league of his own.
Kari Dec 05, 2014

Super helpful. Reviewed inherited project and he was able to shed light on build system and some areas of php that I was unfamiliar with.
