A Bit More Personal

Hello I am Matthew Maennche, an Entrepreneur/Software Developer/Home Builder from Tulsa, Ok. Like anyone else I am complicated, so here is a bit of background.

From an early age I have been fascinated with Business. As a result I have spent very little of my life “working for someone”. Sure I have been an employee and I have certainly had my share of bosses but no matter where I was or what my official title was I have always been focused on my career and its advancement. I suppose it would be safe to say I have always marched to my own drummer good or bad.

Another lifelong fascination has always been technology. Luckily for me we are in a time where both Business and Technology rely on each other more than ever.



As An Entrepreneur:

I am a SCORE volunteer.
Many do not realize this but SCORE (Service Corps Of Retired Executives) is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals through education and mentor-ship.

I specialize in taking existing companies to the “Next Level”. This is a very complicated task with many puzzles to solve in short order. It is solving these “puzzles” that really gets my blood pumping and makes life exciting.



As A Developer

I am a seasoned App Developer and Software Architect. I can/have worked on software written in many languages:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Javascript
  • Classic ASP
  • PHP
  • Visual Basic
  • .NET (VB, C++, C#)
  • Ruby

to name a few.

I have not always been a software developer but I have always been a programmer. I am constantly looking for new projects and languages to grind my teeth on.

My Development Style includes many frameworks however I prefer traditional syntax. I believe too many programmers have come to rely on frameworks, such as jQuery, and have lost a true understanding of how the code works. How can you develop for the wide array of applications that is today’s technology while attempting to make your software as forward compatible as possible without truly understanding how the code you write works?

Any way that is my opinion take it for what you will. I enjoy meeting other developer (current and future) so if you have found my blog please drop a few lines saying Hello.
