Salut! 👋

My name's Matt Ronchetto (I go by ドアマット, doamatto, or maatt on the Internet) and I'm a high school student and an open-source developer/designer with a passion for making accessible, ethical software.

I spend most of my free time listening to music or focusing on studies to land a spot at a nice uni, ideally in the Pacific/Mountain region. When I'm not doing either, chances are I'm either on campus doing life or programming

I'm a peer tutor at my high school, specialising in English and History, with plans to expand into first-year Physics. I also help run the audio and visual works for assemblies and other school events, as well as document it for the school's internal news network.

Outside of my technical hobbies, I've found love in reading books and watching tele series. Some of my favourites are 1984 by George Orwell, The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck by Mark Manson, and Ted Lasso. I also enjoy watching Formula races and playing story-rich games: Necrobarista, the Life is Strange and Portal series being my favourites. I am starting to learn my third language, Chinese; my first two being French and English.


This website

This site was designed to work great with screen readers and have a minimum of WCAG AA contrast. Both of these aid me personally, and only made sense to be requirements for any changes to this site. I had originally planned to redo this site with my own site generator, but decided to keep with Zola for a bit longer. It fits the needs of this site pretty well.


Progamming

I've messed around with software and programming for around 7 years or so; dabbling in tons of languages. I focus a lot of my work in Golang or JavaScript: be it in the browser or the Node engine. I'm curently learning Java and Swift, with plans to learn MATLAB. Anything I make that's public is likely on GitHub.
