Event Storming and Spring with a Splash of DDD

It is my pleasure to announce that I have just joined the developer advocacy team at Pivotal, focusing on Spring. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to learn and collaborate with great and passionate engineers from all over the world. Hence, I must say I am really excited for the upcoming journey.

If you would like to follow me, I tweet under @JakubPilimon and blog here.

Before joining Pivotal, I have had the pleasure of consulting with and learning from software development teams across a variety of domains. Whether the domain is e-commerce, pharma, fintech, or insurance—common to all domains in software are the expectations of users. In this post I'm going to introduce some of my principles for building Spring applications with DDD.
