Hi, my name is Zachary Matar and I am an Web Developer, IT Manager, and Security Specialist. I have been in the technology industry for over 6 years and started programming at the age of 14. I have developed thousands of web applications to full blown multi-entireprise websites. I also built my own MMORPG games and managd forums & sites with over 100,000 members. I was an IT Manager for FlightDeck Air Combat Center the most sophisticated jet simulators in the world. I currently own my own Web Design & Digital Marketing company that has done work for over 100+ clients and manages over 50+ websites monthly. I love programming and the idea of people using something I have developed, my other love is for teaching others my knowledge and learning from people that I teach.
