I am a software engineer, teacher, speaker, and author with over 15 years of enterprise development experience. I currently work for Pivotal as the project lead for the Spring Batch and Spring Cloud Task projects. I have spoken on a number of java, Spring, and big data topics and is a JavaOne Rockstar. I was a member of the expert group for JSR-352 (java batch processing). I am the author of Pro Spring Batch from Apress and the popular Refcard JUnit and EasyMock.

Outside of the daily grind, Michael enjoys spending time with his family and enjoys woodworking, photography and InfoSec hobbies.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
