Get to know me
Hi, I'm Matt Banes
I'm a value-focused Software Engineer with a strong commitment to collaboration and solutions-oriented problem-solving. I'm a team player with a personable and dedicated nature. A respectful self-motivator gifted at providing strong technical direction across multiple projects.

What I Do?
How I can help your next project
As a certified Microsoft Azure Developer, I can help with every stage in Azure projects. From planning architecture and cost to implementation and maintenance.
Many deployment pain-points can be reduced or even eliminated by using DevOps processes. I have experience creating Azure DevOps CI/CD for both on premisis and cloud deployments.
Writing clean, reusable code is a passion of mine. Whether it's for an enterprise-level web API, an Azure Function app to take advantage of cloud computing resources or just a Blazor app for a personal project, .NET is one of my go-to tools in my toolbox.
While I'll be the first to admit I'm no designer, I do have a lot of experience using front-end technologies (Angular, ASP.NET MVC & Blazor to name a few) to create visually appealing and user-friendly user interfaces. User experience is always top of mind because a great feature can be useless without good UX.
With experience handling written and verbal communication within single teams, across multi-team environments, as well as with stakeholders, clients and customers, I can help keep communication (and the project) moving smoothly.
Most of the time there are numerous ways to accomplish a task. It's important to include diverse ideas and perspectives when coming up with a solution. I enjoy brainstorming with you to figure out the best options for a given project.
