I am Michael Callaghan, and I’m Kandio’s go-to guy on everything Ionic.

A few years ago I had a need to write an Android app, but didn’t know Java. I’d heard of Cordova and Phone Gap, technologies that would allow you to use web skills to build apps that would run on phones, but they didn’t seem to play well with AngularJS. That’s what I discovered Ionic, which was barely at Beta stage at the time. Ionic was created to do exactly what I needed, though it has grown far beyond that, into a mature and capable application development ecosystem.

After falling in love with the technology, I decided to share it with others. In 2016 I contracted with Pluralsight to create some courses. Since then, Pluralsight and I have now published five Ionic courses.

From my Pluralsight viewers, to my blog readers at walkingriver.com, to my @walkingriver Twitter followers, there are thousands of Ionic enthusiasts capable of handling all manner of applications. You can gain access to this knowledge and find your next Ionic expert through Kandio.

My Experience

I began my path in professional development in 1995, exactly 14 years after writing my first program. I’ve worked for a wide range of companies, from family-owned startups to Fortune 100 firms. I’ve even started and sold a software development company of my own. My career has spanned more than two decades, and covered everything from Linux driver development, to Windows and Mac apps, to mobile apps and games.
