Slickhouse

Welcome to Slickhouse.com, the website of Matthew Juffs.

Built using ASP.NET MVC 5.0, this website serves as a holding page for now, whereas in the past it used to host a blog of random thoughts. You can browse the original VBScript code used to build SlickCMS on GitHub - for nostalgia reasons, or for shits and giggles.

This page itself uses a collection of HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery - which you can view at framework.slickhouse.com or browse the code for the framework on GitHub.

Originally hosted at home on a Virgin Media cable connection, this website is now brought to you by Microsoft Azure.

In the future I plan to build another Blog using C# and SQL Server - and begin writing informative articles for the world to see. But for now, this website will suffice, while I focus on enjoying life.

About Matt

Born in May 1984, I'm a thirty-something Development Manager working for Remarkable.net in Nottingham.

Originally from Windsor, I moved to Lincoln to study BSc (HONS) Games Computing (Software Development) at the University of Lincoln. After graduating from University, I began a career in Web Development using the Microsoft stack.

I now live near Bourne in rural Lincolnshire, with Leanne - and I'm Daddy to Lily, Mia, Alisha, Tegan and Annie-May. Leanne and I are getting married in 307 days, on Wednesday 1st June 2016!

Elsewhere other places on the internet where you can find me

The internet is everywhere and I can be found in some of those places. Firstly, there's my Facebook and Google+ profiles. I've also got a Twitter account, but I've not used it for a while - I find there's too much noise, whereas Facebook and Google have a good balance between friends, news and interesting articles.

You can find me on LinkedIn and Stack Exchange - and I try to release some of my work on GitHub.

Code snippets that I've come across or written myself, can be found on snippets.slickhouse.com. There's also a few useful tools on tools.slickhouse.com - and the code is available in VB and C#

A copy of my Dissertation can be found on dump.slickhouse.com along with a few screenshots of games and project photos.

If I've missed anywhere, you could always Google Matthew Juffs and see what results are returned. They're pretty good at search.

Contact me using this simple form and the power of email

OK, I lied. There's no contact form here (yet). There would've been - but Google Drive decided it wouldn't sync my new Mail.cs class that I'd written - and I don't fancy writing it all from scratch again.

Email delivery will be powered by Mailgun once I've completed the form. But for now you can simply use my email address: matt[at]slickhouse[dot]com
