About Me

Hi! I’m Myles. I’m a Melbourne-based software engineer and product designer.

I have a background in both frontend and backend development and I have a keen interest in product, design and business.

I hold a strong belief that everything an engineer builds interacts with a person in some way - I want to understand that interaction and make it better.

I believe developers are worth more velocity points on a card wall. They should be included in the whole design process. I want to work in iterative multi-disciplinary teams.

I have a strong interest in IoT development, in particular the ESP8266, the Thread protocol, 6lowpan and 802.15.4. I’m currently automating my house.

I’m a co-author of “Build Mobile Websites and Apps for Smart Devices” (Published by SitePoint).

I’ve also spoken at a number of International Web conferences, including Web Directions and Edge of the Web on the topics of Javascript, Mobile development and OAuth and OpenID.
