In this episode I spoke with Vijay Nair, software architect and designer, as well as a Domain-Driven Design, CQRS, and ES evangelist. We talked about his experience of learning about DDD, CQRS, Event Sourcing, and later on Axon Framework and Axon Server.
Vijay is continuously researching new tools and technologies in the realm of DDD, CQRS, and Event Sourcing. He is a writer for AxonIQ, InfoQ, and other platforms. He has written the book Practical Domain-Driven Design in Enterprise Java. He will soon publish his second book The pocket guide to build applications based on CQRS and Event Sourcing utilizing Axon co-written with Allard Buijze. He is also starting a newsletter this month at LinkedIn that covers his findings, recommendations, and more which we talked about during our conversation. We also talked about Akka and Kafka and whether or not we can use them with Axon. Lastly, we discussed some tools to help design and model systems and projects.
