Hello, I'm Michael

github twitter devto linkedin youtube

1/3 Engineer, 1/3 Educator, 1/3 Imaginer

I'm the director of Developer Relations at @Kong. This is a new role, so I'm still working out what the day to day looks like. My current projects are Action Spotlight, an opinionated look at the best GitHub actions, Tinbox, a team inbox for DevRel teams and finally, trying to to keep a small human alive.

Outside of work, I contribute to the GitHub ecosystem as a GitHub Star and an OpenAPI Business Governance Board alumni.

In a previous life, I:

  • Led a team of 25 people focused on Developer Experience at @Vonage
  • Spent a decade as a developer, working commercially with (in chronological order): PHP, Node, Python, Go and most recently, Ruby
  • Ran an infrastructure team that used Terraform and Chef to deploy to Azure
  • Recorded a video course for Packt publishing on Mastering Express Applications
  • Wrote a book on Ansible for Apress (and contributed a module to Ansible itself)

Today, you'll find me building GitHub Actions, CLI tools, Octokit plugins and streaming on Twitch

Oh, and I recently self published a book + screencasts
on building your own GitHub Actions
