Hi, I am Michael and I graduated from the Electronics Engineering Technology Cooperative program offered by Fanshawe College in my home town, London, ON Canada in 1996. I have since been certified as an Applied Science Technologist by O.A.C.E.T.T.
One of my college teachers always emphasized that we should, “Never implement in hardware what you can implement in software.” That expression has stuck with me since and I still abide by that concept whenever possible. With so many devices, machinery, practically everything going digital and becoming more and more automated using software, less and less is being controlled by hardware.
I am passionate about web design. It allows me to be creative. I enjoy working with web design, content writing, and making websites as responsive and dynamic as possible. I also enjoy teaching others to do the same. Currently, I am teaching classes at the Strangway Community Centre in Sarnia, ON Canada.
I am also passionate about teaching ‘older adults’ how to use their new smartphone, tablet or laptop computer. There is a so called ‘digital divide’ which is a type of generation gap. I hope to bridge that gap and narrow that digital divide using hands-on workshops, one-on-one lessons, and peer-led drop-in sessions.
Thank you for visiting. Contact me with any questions or suggestions you may have. Better still, come out to my next scheduled event.
