My workshops are well-balanced: they contain equal portions of theory and practice. You can start implementing advanced concepts right-away and verify the correctness of their results with the trainer.

Classes are limited to 15 participants to give everybody an equal opportunity to learn.


Concepts in plain sight

When explaining a technical concept, it will not be buried beneath a pile of framework code or implementation details. The concepts are in plain sight, ready for you to grasp.

Sandbox projects contain back-to-basic PHP code, so when you've finished your training, you can then use any framework you like to let your code blossom.


Advanced topics

I offer lots of advanced workshop topics. We don't focus on the basics, we dive straight to the core of a concept.

There are a lot of different subjects we can cover, it's up to you to select which will be most useful for you or your team.

Hilversum (NL)

This 2-day workshop takes a closer look at the communication that happens between the applications in their larger environment. We take insights from Strategic Domain-Driven Design, about Bounded Contexts and Context Mapping. We'll combine those with the accumulated knowledge about Microservice architecture and draw from the catalogue of Enterprise Integration Patterns to design services that communicate in a reliable fashion.

Some of the keywords for this workshop: commands, queries, domain events, event sourcing, projections, eventual consistency. bounded contexts, enterprise integration patterns, (de)serialization, (de)coupling, messaging, DTOs versus domain objects, encoding formats, extracting serializable data, versioning, upcasting, reflection.
