Hi there! I'm Matt Wanchap

I'm an Aussie developer with a love for helping people to be more awesome at what they do best, by providing software solutions to business challenges.

More About Me

I've been working with software professionally in some form or another since around 2008. If I had to pick my favourite things about my work, they would be:

  • Building software tools to help people work more efficiently and effectively
  • Working within legacy codebases to improve things, while learning from how others have tackled their challenges
  • Integrating systems, especially those that weren't designed to be integrated
  • Identifying and addressing security vulnerabilities in web-based applications

Ever since my parents brought home my first computer when I was in grade 3, I'd wanted to be a computer programmer. I first started programming in high school and jumped straight into an IT degree at uni. During my postgrad year I worked part-time at a small web development company called Creative Infusion (which no longer exists) and, full of the hubris of youth I thought, how hard could it be? So I ambitiously tried to start my own little web development business; unfortunately being fresh out of an IT degree I didn't have much in the way of business skills, so it was a very humbling experience!

Since then I've developed solutions for the healthcare, business services and finance industries, as well as teaching two classes (C# programming and web dev) as a teacher at the Australian College of IT.

In 2014 I somehow convinced an amazing woman to marry me and the adventures we've been on so far have been the best yet!
