Hey, I'm Michael Dyrynda!

By day I'm a Senior Developer at MaxoTel, and a freelance developer, blogger, podcaster, and screencaster by night. You can find me as @michaeldyrynda on Twitter.

My first Open Source project ConFOMO, which I rebuilt with Matt Stauffer, and podcast the journey of rebuilding the app whilst learning VueJS on briefs.fm, was launched just in time for Laracon US 2016. You can check out more of my open source work, including my Laravel packages on GitHub.

As a web developer, I specialise in the Laravel Framework and love the freedom it gives me to build things quickly. My web development skills extend to frontend aspects of web development including JavaScript and Vue, LESS/Sass/CSS, as well as designing databases and building applications that can scale.

I write about web development and solving problems I come across day to day when I haven't been able to find good solution elsewhere.

More recently, I've started publishing short videos on YouTube. I plan to cover lots of content on - and tangentially related to - things going on in the Laravel community. Whether cool new packages, opinions on my approaches to development, or features in the framework, I plan to keep them short and informative.

I co-host the North Meets South Web Podcast with Jake Bennett, where we talk about lives as lead developers on opposite sides of the world. I also co-host the Laravel News podcast with the very same Jake Bennett.

I've been hard at work on my upcoming SaaS product, thenping.me - a scheduled task monitoring solution for your Laravel applications. You can jump on the early access list now, and we'll be launching very soon!

The biggest way I give back to the Laravel community is by organising and running Laracon AU.

I'm a real developer ™
