Howdy! My name is Matt Raible and I am the developer and maintainer of this site. It mainly consists of my thoughts and opinions on the technologies I use and develop with. I've had quite a ride in the last few years, serving as the Lead UI Architect for LinkedIn, enhancing Evite.com with GWT and Grails and building a kick-ass team of developers as the Chief Architect of Web Development at Time Warner Cable. Recently, I enjoyed a great ski season in Utah while working at Overstock.com. Then I spent a couple years consulting as a UI Architect developing HTML5 apps at Taleo/Oracle. Recently, I helped John Muir Health develop their mobile app with Spring Boot, AngularJS and Ionic.
I've written a couple of stories on this site where you can learn more about me, check them out if you're interested:
If you're a developer, check out my interview with DZone in February 2014.
Matt's Biography: A Montana native who grew up in a log cabin without any electricity or running water. After hiking to school a mile and a half every day (and skiing in the winter), he would arrive home to a very loving family. "The Cabin" is a beautiful and awesome place that will always be near and dear to Matt's entire family. Even without electricity, his father, Joseph, connected them to the Internet using a 300 baud modem, a Commodore 64, and a small generator. CompuServe was the name, slow was the game. Matt became inspired by the Internet in the early 1990s, and has been developing websites and web applications ever since. He graduated from the University of Denver in 1997 with degrees in Russian, International Business and Finance.
Matt currently resides in Denver, Colorado and is the proud father of Abbie and Jack. He consults as a Web Architect for Raible Designs and is always striving to find the best solutions for developing web applications. His current technologies of choice can be found in JHipster and AppFuse.
Matt met Trish McGinity in June 2010 and it changed his life forever. They were married at Holland Lake in 2013. If you like Matt, there's a good chance you'll like Trish even more! She excels at horseback riding, skiing, loving, laughing and having a good time. You can see Trish's amazing photos at mcginityphoto.com.
When he's not cranking out code, Matt prefers to hang out with his wonderful family, ski/raft/hike/mountain bike, or drive a really kick-ass VW Bus/Van. He plans to travel the world, write for a living and hike/raft/ski/drive his way into old age.
