Microservices is a hot topic. There is a plethora of opinions, conference talks and blog posts about microservices. I started doing microservices myself three-and-a-half years ago, when I was designing a system for an insurance company. Since then I have done many talks on the topic, published articles and presented training courses. Usually, I ask my attendees if they have […]
Verplicht leuk doen Enkele maanden geleden had een goede vriend een kennismakingsgesprek bij een gerenommeerde webwinkel. Het grotendeels blauw ingerichte kantoorpand viel op. Vrijwel alles was gelabeld. De koelkast, de snoepautomaat, de koffieautomaat. Als een aanleunflat van een Alzheimer-patient. Maar er was meer. Alle labels werden ook nog eens begeleid door kwieke one-liners. Allemaal onder het motto: kijk eens hoe […]
Even though the year is still young and still cold, I have already presented two training courses. One on microservices for a transportation company. And one on agile for teachers at a high school who want to adopt agile techniques to their classes. Although the topics were quite different, attendees at both courses had a similar background in doing agile: […]
On January 10 I presented my first talk of the year 2017 at the annual kick-off at insurance software vendor ANVA in Amersfoort, the Netherlands.

Here’s my closing keynote at #SwanseaCon 2016 with Sander Hoogendoorn. Beyond breaking bad. The current state of agile in ten easy lessons. https://t.co/dvZ6QQT347
One of the great things about being a programmer is that you never stop learning. Even after having programmed for almost 35 years, I still improve on the way I write code. About a year ago, the way I write code changed once again when I started to apply monads and especially the Try class. Do. Or do not. There […]
Over the years there’s quite a number of books I have recommended to audiences at keynotes, talks and training courses. Quite often people have asked me for a list of recommended reading. It’s about time that I create this list and put it on my website. So here it is – in an unordered list. Robert C. Martin – Agile […]

Full house at my beyond agile talk at Microsoft TechDays this morning.
Although I was invited to come and do a talk at GeeCon in Krakow, Poland earlier this year, I couldn’t make it – and as a consequence I’m no going to do a talk at GeeCon in Prague. My talk will be around microservices, Kanban and continuous delivery, and maybe some Java code examples too. See more at: http://2016.geecon.cz/

In September 2016 I will do the closing keynote for SwanseaCon in Swansea, Wales.

It’s April and the sun is slowly becoming more powerful, warming the people in the green and white deck chairs in Green Park in London. A few minutes ago, I took the tube to travel back to Heathrow Airport, and afterwards home. Next to me a man is playing a game on his mobile device. Despite feeling drowsy from the […]
