Write Code

Like A Wolf


I'm Mike Rourke, a software engineer that lives in Portland, Oregon. I love all things programming and have been writing code in one form or another for over a decade. I've worked pretty heavily with the following technologies:

  • JavaScript/TypeScript
  • React/Redux
  • Electron
  • Go

I also wrote a book, Learn WebAssembly, that you should check out.

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology from Purdue University Northwest and have experience with manufacturing engineering, product engineering, and CAD modeling (in addition to programming). I even spent a couple of years as an industrial electrician.

I've worked for large product companies, small startups, and as a consultant. My expertise is in web development, but I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting opportunities.

In addition to a passion for creating text files, I love the outdoors and camping.

If you wondering about the site title, I'm a wolf enthusiast and happen to know that wolves don't mess around. Thus, write code like you're not messing around. If you're not familiar with the majesty of wolves, educate yourself.
