Mathias Verraes is an independent consultant. He advises companies on how to build enterprise applications for complex business domains. He specializes in curing large legacy projects: the kind where there's half a million lines of spaghetti code, and nobody knows how to get the project under control.
As a blogger and and a speaker, Mathias is on a mission to spread the ideas of Domain Driven Design in the web development world. He's the founder of the Belgian DDD community. When he's not working, he's at home in Kortrijk, Belgium, helping his two sons build Lego train tracks.

driving the domain.
