Matt Waler Web Developer
Matt Waler's handsome face.

The most easy-going web developer you'll ever meet.

I develop, deploy, and teach all things modern web development. I also love a good burrito.

What I do for a living.

Listed below you will find a comprehensive list of the skills and services that I provide for my clients.

Accessibility

I am constantly making sure the code I produce is WCAG compliant and accessible to all users, regardless of their disabilities. Nobody should have a poor experience when it comes to the web.

Backend Development

I can build full-blown traditional content management systems with Craft CMS, or headless APIs for accessing and consuming data with Node and GraphQL.

Deployment

I am an expert at configuring continuous deployment and continuous integration. My tools of choice are DigitalOcean, Netlify, and GitHub Actions.

Frontend Development

My biggest strength is turning static mockups and designs into fully responsive codebases. I am proficient in the latest and greatest frontend frameworks like React, Vue, Svelte, and TailwindCSS.

Hosting

Regardless of project type, I can configure servers, domains, and credentials to make sure everything is secure, performant, and dead-simple.

Web Consulting

I can observe, diagnose, and recommend solutions in all of the services listed on this very page.

A little bit about me.

I'm an Ohio University graduate from Broadview Heights, Ohio. I love development, lifting, and the occasional blockbuster. I like to think I'm decently funny, but my friends can assure you that I am not.

Some of my favorite hobbies include:

Developing & Improving

You will often catch me researching, practicing, and trying out the latest and greatest to stay at the top of my game.

Hitting the Gym

I try to hit the gym a few times a week to build those vanity muscles. My goal is to look like Brad Pitt in Fight Club.

Listening to Audiobooks

Reading is difficult for me, but I love audiobooks. My favorite listen so far has been Thinking in Bets by Annie Duke.

Listening to Podcasts

When doing mundane tasks, I usually toss in my headphones and try to learn from others. I love Syntax and Fullstack Radio.

Playing Ping-Pong

I played a lot of Tennis in High School, and since realized that I enjoy the version without running. I love a good game of baby tennis.

Watching Movies

I absolutely love movies. My favorite film to date is Jojo Rabbit. Baby Driver is a close second place.
