Hello, my name is Matthew 'Matt' Champion. I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2008 with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and the University of Southampton in 2012 with a Master's degree in Software Engineering with Distinction. My Master's dissertation was focused on model checking and I am trying to keep it active. I also had the opportunity to study type systems, web services, the semantic web and aspect-oriented programming.

Between these I had a job at OpenBet where I worked as a Software Developer. OpenBet use an internally developed application server and libraries to script server side behavior using Tcl scripts. After working there for three years I left to work on a Master's degree because after three years out of University I believed if I did not do it then I never would. I've recently started a new job at Push Technology as their Customer Centric Engineer. It has a completely different product to OpenBet but shares many of the same customers. My support role gives me the chance to gain experience with technologies that are new to me such as Flash and Android development. Both of which have client APIs for Diffusion. This is good because the biggest barrier I find to learning something new is the absence of something to do with it.

As you can see from this website I spend my free time coding, you can take a look at my projects to see what I do.
