Speaking & Training

I’d love the opportunity to come share my knowledge of, and passion for, technology at your event. I’ve spoken at meetups and conferences for a number of years now; I enjoy the experience of helping people encounter new technologies or invest more into ones they already know.

I speak on a range of topics but you’ll most often hear me talking about:

  • Modern PHP development
  • Visibility & observability of web applications
  • AWS & infrastructure as code
  • Information security

I tend to write talks as I go, but you can see some samples of past talks from:

If you’d like me to come speak at your event, drop me and email to “mike” at m1ke dot me. I live in Manchester UK and can travel as long as I can make it back in one evening, or if accommodation can be provided.


I have run workshops previously on:

  • Migrating legacy LAMP applications to AWS
  • Building real time web applications with websockets

I can come and run these at your conference or business. There will be a charge for private training.


I am full time employed and as such don’t currently offer long term consulting services. However I am always up for meeting companies and offering my thoughts on their specific technical challenges. Get in touch if you’d like to meet up and chat.
