Allard Buijze is Founder and CTO of AxonIQ. Starting at the age of 6, he has developed a great passion for programming and has guided both large and small organizations in building performance and scalable applications. Now, he is on a mission to make implementations of large-scale systems easier, using the concepts of Domain-Driven Design (DDD), Command-Query Responsibility Separation (CQRS), and Event-Driven Architectures (EDA). He created the Axon Framework, initially as an experiment, but when various organizations started using Axon as a solution to their complex problems, AxonIQ was born.
Through his conviction that good craftsmanship can only be achieved through continuous and intensive exchange of experience with others, Allard is a frequent speaker at conferences and meetups and enjoys providing trainings to fellow developers and architects. Allard is also regularly found in board rooms, explaining the concepts and values of DDD, CQRS and EDA to C-level executives.
