Welcome

Matthew O'Neill's Portfoilo

About Me


I'm a 22 year old male human. I live in Dublin, Ireland, where I study Computer Science in Dublin Institute of Technology.

I love computers and technology, and spend way too much time reading about those things and watching technology videos. Programming is what I love to do, so I'm always learning new technologies. Aside from nerdy stuff, I run to keep fit, and am an avid music fan, if you are too, then have a look at my Last.fm page.

I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome you to my portfolio page, which is the first assignment for the rich web application technology module. If you'd like to learn more about me, or what I've been up to lately, please have a look at my website and Github Page.
