Michael Hunger has been passionate about software development since his childhood days in East Germany. He is particularly interested in the people who develop software, software craftsmanship, programming languages, and improving code. While he likes coaching and in-project development as an independent consultant (“better software development evangelist” — http://jexp.de), he really enjoys the numerous other projects in his life.

One half of his life is devoted to his family of three kids, a longtime obsession for a text-based multi-user dungeon (MUD MorgenGrauen), reading books whenever possible, running his coffee shop “die-buchbar” with a workshop for printing on things, and tinkering with and without Lego┬«. The other half is filled with working with programming languages and learning new ones, enjoying IT podcasts (especially Software Engineering Radio), participating in exciting and ambitious projects like qi4j, creating DSLs (jequel, squill, and xmldsl), lots of refactoring, and contributing to and reviewing books in progress. Recently, he started to present at conferences.

  • Do you mind if we post your time management with LEGO to our LEGO Smart blog for teachers?

  • Sure go for it, thanks for mentioning it there.

    I’d be interested in the feeback you get from your teachers.

    Hi Michael.

    I notice you imported a flatbed printer from China. I am looking to do the same and just wondered if you would be willing to provide a bit of advice. If so please would you be kind enough to drop me an email

    Thanks ever so much

    Do you mind if I use and cite your time management with LEGO pictures into a paper I’m working on ?

  • Feel free to do it.

    Hi Michael, nice to meet you. I’ve had the chance to see a video of yours on youtube about a NoSql Matters conference ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeJHRpbIqV0 )
    Here, you explained many interesting concepts but video quality is poor and queries/examples are not easily readable. Will it be possible for you share the graphdb and the sequence of queries so anyone can practice them? Outcomes are astonishing but it’s hard to follow.

    Can you please also suggest a tool that allows exploring and creating nodes visually? Thanks a lot for your precious job

  • Hi, here are more recent slides: slideshare.net/neo4j

    The examples for software analytics are linked in the slides but also check out jqassistant.org for an OSS tool.
