My name is Matt Greer and I am based in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area.
I have been a professional software engineer since about the year 2000, but have been programming since I was a small child. My career has spanned many industries and technologies, but lately I've been focused on web tech such as React, Web Assembly and Svelte.
I have worked for Netflix and Microsoft, amongst other companies (here is my resume). I am now an independent developer, and am interested in working with dynamic teams to help build out cutting edge web experiences. Check out my hire me page to learn more.
As you can probably tell by many of my projects, I really like old video games. I especially find old game console hardware interesting. It's super neat how they were custom built for running games, almost as if they have a game engine built into the hardware itself.
Recently I have been exploring baking bread and pizza. Here is a recent baguette I made, and well, I have a long ways to go . It's pretty interesting just how far down the rabbit hole you can go on flour, hydration, fermentation and more. And eating delicious bread regularly is okay by me.
I'm a big softy when it comes to animals. Here is our blind dog Franny,
and our cat Charlie.
I also really enjoy the game Dance Dance Revolution. This is a video game where you physically "dance" on a platform in time with the game's prompts. It's a great workout! I've recently acquired an amazing home setup which is just about on par with what you'd find in an arcade.
I enjoy the game so much I created Stepcharts.com to help people find interesting songs they didn't know about.
This site was built with Next.JS and hosted by Vercel. I used Tailwind CSS for the styling, and created the illustrations with Inkscape. You can see its source code here.
