Hello, I'm Mike Riethmuller
I'm a web developer and I make all sorts of stuff for the web. You can find some of my
code work experiments creations shame on CodePen or GitHub and you can talk to me on Twitter.
When I'm not making things for the web I sometimes think about stuff and on rare occasions I write about it. You can find some of my writing here.
Stuff I wrote:
Style Guides: 50 shades of corporate blue26 Feb 2016 I recently completed my third attempt at implementing a style guide within my organisation. So far this is the first attempt that looks to be maintainable and has some traction outside the development team. I want to share with you how we got there and what I learnt from 2 failed attempts.
More about me
Oh, hey! You're still here, good for you! You should know I'm passionate about web development and that doesn't just mean standards; I'm an advocate for anything and anyone that contributes to good quality web development.
I've worked as a front-end developer on some of Australia's largest websites as well as some of the smallest community sites. When I'm not building sites or blogging I like to experiment with code. I love learning new things and finding techniques that challenge what we think is best practice. Although very few ideas make it into my production toolkit, I find experimentation is the best way learn and the only way to discover new techniques.
Although I'm not the best writer or speaker I try to share everything I learn, I blog here, help organise community meetups and sometimes events.
I'm not actively looking for work at the moment but if you really want to ask me something you will find my email below.
Feel free to send me an email. You can reach me at "mike (at) madebymike (dot) com (dot) au". Go for it! You can actually email me and I will actually reply, if you're still reading this you're worth my time!
