About the Author

Matthew Sinex
Matthew Sinex

I am a professional full-stack web developer with experience in ASP.NET technologies, including C#, MVC, and MS SQL. I’ve got all the other standard web tools rattling around in my brain: HTML5, CSS, JavaScript. I’ve used React, Vue, and a few other front-end frameworks as well. I believe in using the right tools for the right job, not just using the "shiny" tools because they’re new.


Programming has been a passion of mine since I was a young child. The first programs I made came out of the pages of Boy’s Life and were input in the clacky keys of our family’s Commodore 64. Fun times. This passion continued into my teens and college days. After taking a years-long detour into an unrelated field, I went back to school and achieved my dream of becoming a programmer.
