Domain Driven Design, Test Driven development and team dynamics are some subjects you can learn about by attending my talks. I’m Joop Lammerts, and I have done web development since the beginning of 2.0. After working in solitude for ages I now found myself surrounded by enthusiastic colleagues.
I’m a typical “home schooled” developer. But it is impossible to work on complex domain models on your own. So I looked for place where I can learn, but still commit to my “no nonsense – it works doesn’t it” approach. I now work with business owners and domain experts on a day to day basis to create happiness among their clients.
In a previous live I’ve been a youth social worker. So i have a great knowledge and experience in the field about group dynamics and working together as a team. I would like to share all my lessons learned with you! So hopefully I will see you at one of my talks.
