You can contact me if you need any consultancy help.

If you need help with a Linux or coding problem, I’m available for hire as a consultant.

My career has been focussed mostly on Linux servers, PHP development and management & I’ve been blogging about this for more than a decade.

If you need help with a technical problem, I can help as an independent consultant. Here’s what I’m good at.

What can I do?

Among other things, I can help with the items below.

Linux

  • Servers (RHEL & CentOS, Debian & Ubuntu)
  • Varnish (I maintain the popular Varnish baselines used worldwide)
  • Webservers like Apache, Nginx, Lighttpd, Caddy, …
  • Database servers like MySQL / MariaDB and limited experience with PostgreSQL
  • Caching technologies like Redis
  • Modern PHP (7.x and higher)
  • High availability setups, cloud & on-prem
  • Scaling your application beyond a single server (load balancing, failover, scale-out, horizontal scaling, …)
  • Server security
  • Troubleshooting (pretty much anything)

Development

  • PHP
  • Architecture & design
  • Implementing caching strategies
  • UI/UX

Product development

  • Brainstorming features
  • Determining priorities to ship faster
  • Sharing lessons learned building my own SaaS projects

Technical writing

  • Blogpost on technical topics (any of the above)
  • Documentation for developers

Educational content

  • Group lessons on any of the topics above
  • 1-on-1 teaching
  • Public speaking & conference speaking

I master several low-level protocols like DNS, HTTP & TLS.

Here’s my LinkedIn profile with several recommendations (sorry for the #HumbleBrag, but I’m trying to prove I’m a trustworthy guy. 🤗 ).

How to reach me?

If you’re interested in working together, reach out via m@ttias.be. If you prefer other communication methods, have a look at my contact page.

We can schedule a video call to talk about the challenge or problem you’re facing and how I can help.

If you have an acute problem or question, I’ll most likely be able to help out.

Practical information

If we have a match, here are some practical details on how we can proceed.

  1. I’d probably need SSH server access, here’s my public key & IP addresses for firewalls
  2. Payments can be made through wiretransfer or via credit card. Here’s some more info on that.

Let’s talk, shall we?
