About

I'm Matt. I'm an engineer and consultant curently helping teams build modern software with cloud native tools.

When I was younger, I really wanted to be an archeologist like Indiana Jones. So when I found out that you don't actually get to fight nazis or swing around mysterious ruins on a bullwhip, I did the natural thing and decided I wanted to be a programmer instead (hopefully making video games about fighting nazis and swinging around mysterious ruins).

I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2007 with a Bachelors in Computer Science and grew up professionally with some great engineers and mentors at SRC Inc. It was there under the umbrella of various research programs that I had the opportunity to learn about building software too big for one computer, and improving complicated computer and human processes.

I love the human parts of software engineering, because software engineering is more about solving human problems than it is computers. I've been working with Pivotal Software (now a part of VMware) since 2016 to help teams think and talk and work together to build better software to do all sorts of things.

I'm @mtthwcmpbll on Twitter, LinkedIn, and GitHub.
