What I do
I have more than 10 years' experience building software for clients all over the world. Below is a quick overview of my main technical skill sets and technologies I use. Want to find out more about my experience?
I jumped on the Node boat in 2012 having coming from PHP/CodeIgniter, I really enjoyed the flexibility of Express.js and how fast you can build a MVP or API in no time
HTML & CSS
The web was built on hypertext and always enjoy dropping down into the raw HTML or CSS of a website/application rather than something like PUG or Handlebars
When Puppetter was announced I jumped head first, moving away from Nightmare.js. Building bots is something I have a passion for and just love scraping the web
Search Engine Optimization
Having got into blogging in 2005, I was always interested in SEO and continue to be focusing on Technical SEO as search has become so much in today's world
What is not to love about a cheap single board computer. I have a Raspbery PI cluster on my desk and love them. Having worked with them and deployed them in a production setting, they are super powerful and great IoT devices

John's projects included implementing and supporting the first MovableType blog installation at UVM, developing image databases for art courses, etc....
John Murch is amazing. He is one of 4 people I'd hire no matter what type of company I started or moved to. He's one of those people you just want in your company. He's brilliant, always positive, and focuses on the business bottom line. If you are looking to hire John, just do it and worry about a role for him later, in the mean time he’ll figure out a way to make you more money.
