Hi, my name is Michael Schnell and I’m a Java Software Developer/Architect and IT Project Manager. I was born back in 1967 and I live in the beautiful city of Hamburg with my wife Susanne and my adult daughter Franziska.
Software Development is my profession and my passion. I love to develop helpful software that makes users happy. Sometimes I’m a perfectionist – especially when it comes to keeping code clean and maintainable. My colleagues can tell you a thing or two about it 😉
One of the best parts of my job is that I can work together with teams of smart people and learn new things all the time. For me it’s real fun to go on that Project Journey and learn from other people’s experiences or share my own with them.
Software development for me is much about thinking in decades – Your code may live longer than you thought when you created it! (that’s especially true for workarounds 😉 ) What about those people who need to maintain your source when you’re working on another project or at a different place for an extended period of time? The real art of programming is to create code that’s still understandable several years later.
