Short biography:

Vaughn Vernon is a software developer and architect with more than 30 years of experience in a broad range of business domains. Vaughn is a leading expert in Domain-Driven Design and a thought leader in software simplification.

He consults and teaches around Domain-Driven Design and reactive software development, helping teams and organizations realize the potential of business-driven and reactive systems as they transition from technology-driven legacy web implementation approaches. As he does so, he puts strong emphasis on embracing simplicity whenever possible.

I met Vaughn at the first edition of DDD Summit in Portland in May 2011. His competence on architecture and methodologies, and on technology, got me instantly. I could also appreciate Vaughn’s spirit and his eye for detail in finding a point where all ideas being expressed could meet (and not getting lost in ideological debate).

Therefore it was no surprise when I found out he ventured in the monumental undertaking of writing a new chapter of the history of Domain-Driven Design. This was going towards the direction of filling a gap Eric left empty when he announced there wouldn’t have been a second edition of the so called “blue book”.

If you’re interested in discovering the thousands of faces of what’s behind the delivery of a Domain-Driven Design, or of good software in general, then Vaughn is your man.
