About Laracademy, and who is this Mickey?

Hi everyone, welcome back to Laracademy (or maybe it is your first time). My name is Michael McMullen and I am a full time web developer for Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

My first computer was a Commodore 64 where I spent many days writing infinite loops in basic. Down the road my family upgraded to a Pentium 386. Throughout school I was an advid gamer and it wasn't until Highschool where I fell in love with programming. I had purchased a game called Quake by Id Software and starting programming with the language called Quake C.

I picked up a few other programming language throughout highschool. In grade 9 I was introduced to the wonderful world-wide web. This is where my passion for PHP came from. During highschool we were using a language called Turing and I wanted to create a community for it so that I could share my knowledge with others and they could share their knowledge as well. I created my first portal and since then I have been creating multiple applications using numerous language for different companies.

I have an extreme passion for teaching others as I participate in local software events and teach online to other students. I hope to share with you the knowledge that I have gained over my past 20 years experience.
