I'm Matt, a full-stack C# developer specialising in Umbraco. I'm the creator of Jacker.io and Amplify premium theme for Umbraco.

Thanks for taking the time to visit Jacker.io!

I'm Matt, and this site is my creation, my aim is to make Jacker a go-to site for Umbraco knowledge, I aim to share my experiences of developing using the 'friendly CMS' and to provide tutorials on how to create awesome sites and applications using the platform.

A little about myself, I am from a town called Newmarket, just outside of Cambridge in the UK. I have been developing sites using the Umbraco CMS platform since version 4. I started work at an agency called Flag, my very first project was an online shop using Umbraco to sell live worms, mice and insects. These were bought by reptile owners to feed to their pets. The versatility of Umbraco!

Since, then, I started building bigger and better things with the platform. I gained my Level 2 Umbraco certification in July of 2012, left Flag and moved into Umbraco contracting full-time, working for multiple agencies including MerchantCantos, Tribal Worldwide, M-is, Simplicity Partners, Blackbridge Communications, Grey Health Group, Iris Worldwide, Super Union, Radley Yeldar and the Travel Corporation.

My current focus is on working with Umbraco 8, diving deeper into Vue Js, Bulma and Tailwind CSS.

I hope you enjoy my tutorials and packages and I look forward to getting to know you.

Happy Umbracoing!
