James Lewis is a Principal Consultant for ThoughtWorks UK. He has helped introduce evolutionary architecture practices and agile software development techniques to various blue chip companies: investment banks, publishers and media organisations. James Lewis studied Astrophysics in the 90’s but got sick of programming in Fortran.
As a member of the ThoughtWorks Technical Advisory Board, the group that creates the Technology Radar, he contributes to industry adoption of open source and other tools, techniques, platforms and languages. For the last few years he has been working as a coding architect on projects built using microservices; exploring new patterns and ways of working as he goes.
James Lewis has spoken at a number of UK and international conferences. His favorite topics range from domain driven design, SOA and the future of the web to agile adoption patterns and lean thinking. He’s also heavily involved in the fledgling microservice community. He rather likes the fact that he got to describe his take on things jointly with Martin Fowler in an article that is influencing how people see the future of software architecture.
Sometimes he blogs at http://bovon.org.
We welcome James Lewis to I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2015 in Bucharest and we’re looking forward for an awesome gathering.
