Hello! My name is
Mike Zornek. I am a self-employed developer and teacher from Bensalem, PA (just outside Philadelphia).
I enjoy building products such as
Guildflow, a tool for helping run a technical meetup, or teaching people programming things through place like Phoenix by Example.
Technologies I am
currently using and excited about include: Elixir, Phoenix, LiveView, TailwindCSS, AlpineJS, Hugo, and GraphQL.
want to learn or get better at include: Rust, WebAssembly, Docker, Terraform and GitHub Actions.
used in the recent pass, and happy to help out with: Swift, Objective-C and iOS development.
I am available
For Hire as a freelance consultant. Usually I end spending most of my time helping to support the full time members of a team with code review and mentorship while filling in the gaps with dedicated coding work.
I am an active member of many Philadelphia-based communities including:
IndyHall, Philly Elixir, Philly CocoaHeads and other tech groups.
