Become a sponsor to Stefan Haun


Stefan Haun

Magdeburg, Germany

I am a computer scientist from Germany, busy writing code since the age of eight. Computers speak to me and I listen. Scientist at heart.

In my other, parallel life, I am a hobby musician, experimenting with and creating (Eurorack) modular synthesizers.

So far I have gathered professional experience in:

  • Computer Science (esp. Machine Learning, Databases, Information Retrieval, Human-Machine Interaction)
  • Software Development (Coding and Project Management)
  • Hardware Development (Leadership along the stack from chip design to device production)
  • Leadership in industrial development
  • Academic research (in the area of computer science)

Currently I am working on a seamless integration between computers and my everyday life. This includes:

  • Self-management
  • Personal Information Management (PIM)
  • Automation of repetitive tasks
  • IoT
  • Support for software development and other types of work.

I'm a co-founder of a Hackerspace und like to explore devices and build out my own ideas. Currently with a focus on electronic music.

Sponsorship will help me to engage in projects that are important, but do not deliver immediate economic value (like so many Open Source software projects). Ultimately I want to improve the way we organize ourselves and our life with others using IT (computers, smartphones and whatever devices are yet to come).

I am very happy to (professionally) talk about project ideas, the future and how to make our world a better place.

Fluent in 🇩🇪 German and 🇬🇧 English.
