About Me

Picture of Michael OrmondeMy name is Michael and I come from Ireland. Born and raised in Dublin, I attended Dublin City University, eventually graduating with a BSc. in Computer Applications and Development. Upon leaving college, I began working at Hostelworld.com, as part of the team helping to maintain the company’s websites and develop all new features and functionality. Primarily a PHP developer, I also work with MySQL, and dabble in Java on occasion.

Outside of the workplace, I enjoy video games, even writing about them for Irish website GimmeDigital, as well as previously for IrishNewsReview.net. I’m also quite active, playing softball with the Suspects Softball club under Softball Leinster. I read quite a bit, with series’ such as Song of Fire and Ice and The Dark Tower being some of my all time favourite reads.

This site will be my outlet to the world. As well as maintaining my own personal blog, I hope it will encourage me to do some more development on my own time, be that contributing to open source projects or developing my own projects and ideas.
