AT A GLANCE
My name is Michael Wutzke and I’m working as a web developer and strategic IT advisor in Frankfurt/Germany. I’m programming in around a dozen programming and script languages (frontend, backend, and the shell). My working instruments are Windows and Linux computers, but I also used to work 5 years on a Mac.
The focus of my work in the last years were especially mobile apps and online shops. Besides my technological skills around IT aspects I have extensive knowledges in sales, marketing, management, and design. Together, these knowledges turn me into an IT allrounder who can talk with all kinds of involved people. Feel free to check out my blog or contact me if you have any questions about my work.
I love to design and concept things. That was also the reason why I decided for a technical diploma in machine building when I was 20 years old. Since then, my love in designing and creating things did not change. But instead of building physical machines like I was intended to do, I am today creating digital machines: applications and websites that work and are successful.
In the backend I use PHP/Symfony and Microsoft .NET. I have also senior-level experiences in dealing with databases such as MySQL, Postgres and SQL Server. My server environments are Linux servers and Windows servers, including setting up servers and managing them. For dealing with programming code I use Git/GitFlow, often in combination with software like GitHub and JIRA.
NOT RELEVANT, PERHAPS INTERESTING
I started programming at the age of 15 using Basic and Assembler on Amiga computers. Later, I switched to PCs and started to program Pascal at school. Between 1990 and 1997 I actively used modems and ran mailboxes to exchange data. In 1997 I learned ColdFusion, and some years later switched to PHP. In 2012, I became a Frontend specialist using jQuery, Bootstrap and HTML5. In 2018 I began to use Angular and .NET technology.
I am trying to always find the best solution. I am a creative IT guy with a passion for details.
Yes, since 2016 I am developing websites using WordPress. I have gained insights in running single WordPress installations as well as multi sites. I also have experiences in managing multi lingual sites and running sites powered by the Woocommerce eCommerce plugin. My knowledge goes far beyond usaing and doing frontend customization of WordPress: my expertise in WordPress includes expert level knowledge in theme setups, child themes, creating and patching plugins, versioning, CI pipelines, user management, hosting and security.
I am passionate and I am feeling great thankfulness for everything I can do. Nothing can stop me from reaching the best results.
