Hi, I’m Matt Button. I write this blog, work as a software developer at a financial technology company, and live in Wellington, New Zealand.
Here’s what I’m up to nowadays:
I’m currently working as a software developer at a financial technology company in Wellington, New Zealand. Before that, I was Senior Developer / Development Team Lead at Contact Software. More details on my Linkedin page.
I write articles for this blog. In 2019, I’m aiming to publish at least one article a month.

Spearfishing and Diving
I catch my own fish while Spearfishing. During summer time, when the water is warmer, always have plenty of fish in my freezer.
I occasionally work on 3D graphics projects, taking a photo reference, and re-creating as a digital 3D scene.
I like to make beer, and make a few batches per year. I’m no expert, or connoisseur, but I do like good beer.
In Wellington, New Zealand, we’re lucky to have The Occasional Brewer where you can make your own. The process is a level above home brewing - using their high-end equipment, well-refined recipes, and guidance, it’s hard to get it wrong. You can brew whatever you want from a wide range of options.
