About Matt McMahon
Matt McMahon is one of the co-founders of E2E Studios. Computers caught his interest during primary school: the classroom computer, an old Windows 95 machine, introduced him to word processing, basic digital design and the Internet itself.
In short he is one smart cookie!
He spent his teenage years learning how it all worked, utilising this knowledge to create and host fan sites for online gaming communities. This, a brief stint at college, as well as freelance and salaried employment at various companies, introduced him to the fundamentals of the Internet: how computers are connected to each other, how the packets that comprise information are routed, how firewalls factor into it, the software required for a computer to actually become a web server, and languages that could be used to generate web pages for viewing.
Over the last 20 years, Matt has worked with an array of languages and tools. Today, for servers, his preferred tech stack involves a Linux-based operating system (usually Debian) with a containerisation platform (such as Docker) managing services on that host, using Ansible to configure groups of servers at once. He also reaches for bash when shell scripting is required, as well as PowerShell if Windows or Microsoft Azure is involved.
