The big idea

Some ideas have our singular names inscribed upon them and it is our responsibility to reach beyond our lesser selves to the brightest version of what we can be and breathe life into these ideas. Nick Cave, The Red Hand Files, Issue 33

My big idea is to accelerate adoption of event-sourcing, or more generally event-driven architectures. I’m passionate about it and I’ve been interested in event-driven code for the last 20 years, ever since my first co-op stint at EA Sports back in the 90s.

I think event-sourcing is either not well-known or misunderstood.

I’m on a mission to correct this.

What’s yours?
