Meet the Team - Michael Moore

Meet Michael Moore, joining M10c as a full-time Front End Developer, as he shares with us his experience and journey into the world of programming.

Michael Moore

Tell us a little about your background.

I come from an Oil Painting background: michaelsydneymoore.com. Something I still do when I'm not programming. An unusual entry into the world of software engineering I must admit. It did however prepare me well for sitting down for long periods of time in front of a problem! And fostered in me an attention to detail that I think helps in my work as a Software Engineer.

What do you do at M10c?

I'm a Front End engineer at M10c. I work on the client side of applications. Effectively I work as a bridge between the back-end business logic of an application and the client facing design aspects. It's my job to turn the ideas of our talented designers into a product that works quickly, without bugs and is scalable.

What inspired you to start programming?

I was introduced to programming through my first website. I remember thinking it was amazing that there was a language that you could talk to computers in. I was genuinely confused as to how the computer could understand what I was typing so I decided to dive in deeper. This led me all the way down the rabbit hole to assembly language and how voltage directs binary inputs, from there I was hooked!

Could you describe the main challenges of a front end developer?

I think the main challenges as a front end developer evolve around how quickly the front end landscape changes. Javascript for example is continuously evolving at a speed unmatched by any other language. As well as that there are continuously new and more efficient ways of integrating different aspects of the front end. Staying up to date with all the developments can be a challenge.

What do you enjoy most about being a front end developer?

I like that the ecosystem is constantly changing. There is a lot of room to learn new technologies and more efficient ways of doing something. I also like that I get to see the results of my work while I’m building it.

What are the values that drive you?

Attention to detail and building systems that are at the cutting edge of what's possible development wise. One of the reasons I came to M10c was their focus on building modern systems that support the needs of modern clients who need fast, scalable applications.

How do you like to spend your free time?

Painting and building things! Currently working on a kitchen island for my flat.
