Matt started out as a self-taught developer long before resources were readily available on the internet back in the late 90s. He frequented the local library regularly grabbing every book he could get his hands on. He finally landed his first real job in 2007 after taking a few structured classes in college. Those humble beginnings as a QA Software Engineer help solidify a lifelong desire to write well tested and maintainable code. Since then he has been actively engaged on various Open-Source projects and at times spear headed successful projects such as react-bootstrap.
