About: Me

Matt Rude

Hi, my name is Matt Rude, I’m a 43 year old, computer technician for a medium size company in the Twin Cities, Minnesota.

I have worked in Information Technology for over 27 years. During that time I have worked for business sectors as diverse as Public Schools to Auto Part to Health Care.  These different businesses use Technology in different ways, but the root of the technology is always the same.

Besides of my professional life in technology, I’m also involved in with a number of Open Source projects including WordPress, RoundCube, MythTV and others.

Some of the plugins I have created for these projects maybe found on my Projects Page.  Please have a look at them. If you wish, you are free to download and use them as you wish.  Any translation support is always welcome.

Outside of computers and technology, I enjoy camping, biking and other outdoor activities.  Many of which involves my family’s cabin.
