Hi, I'm Matt! (My intro)

Hi, I’m Matt! A lot of you have probably seen me somewhere around here. I’m not new to the forums, I just never took the time to make an intro, so I thought when better than now (better late than never).

I’m 16 (going on 17, when it gets nearer to my birthday I doubt I’ll hear the end of that song…), and I live in Australia. Programming is my hobby/passion/borderline addiction… but some other things I do include playing tennis and swimming. I love reading, and when I have the time and inspiration, writing. Another thing I love is teaching (especially programming) things to others, and generally helping them. I’m a full-stack NodeJS dev, but I also know a few (probably an excessive amount of) other languages. A short list of my more well-known languages are Python, C++, C#.

I love making all kinds of things! I’m not the most creative person when it comes to ideas, so I prefer to make things that enable other people to bring their ideas to life easier! A great example is the game engine I made (a long time ago), which is something I might revisit in the future to make lots of improvements to. I’d also like to convert the majority of it to C++ so I can compile to WASM which would make it incredibly fast! Two of the cooler Repls I’ve made are this Skeleton Loading Repl, and this semi-interactive animation of The Solar System. My both most well known (7.7k+ forks…), and yet least well known (no one sees the cover page) Repl is my Intro to JS Repl, which won second place in Replit’s 2022 Tutorial Jam and now has it’s place on the Learn page. I’m so happy that I’ve been able to (hopefully) help teach so many people JavaScript.

I’m also a bounty hunter and (at least I think) I’ve been doing well so far. I’ve managed to complete 7 bounties and have an overall rating of 4.9 stars! (I’m hoping to be able to cash out my cycles soon!)

I love helping out here on the community forums!

The community here and on Replit is amazing, and I look forward to spending more time in both places and meeting lots of new people!
