About me

A meeting with management to help them understand how to apply Domain Driven Design and get business value from it. Implementing type-driven optimizations in a compiler. Delivering a class on software architecture, helping students to grasp and understand new concepts.

It's all in a typical week's work for Jonathan!

He has an eye for elegance and simplicity, and loves to take something that seems difficult, get to the heart of the complexity and make an easy to understand solution.
