Hello, I’m Mike Riethmuller
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.
If you use CSS in your daily work, your primary goal is probably focused around making things ‘look right’. How this is achieved is often far less important than the end result. This means we care less about how CSS works than the correct syntax and visual results.
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.
I try to share everything I learn, I speak, I blog and sometimes help organise community events & meetups.
I’m available for hire! Why don’t you get in touch?
Feel free to send me an email. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Go for it! You can actually email me and I will actually reply, if you’re still reading this you’re worth my time!
