Patrik Fredriksson, Citerus
As a co-founder and consultant with Citerus Patrik has been doing professional software development and mentoring for the last ten years. He has a particular passion for agile software design and architecture, software development project efficiency and developer craftsmanship. He is highly motivated to improve the way software is created and maintained; good software is fun to use and fun to create, bad software and lost projects make him sad.
Patrik sees bridging the gap between business people and developers as absolutely crucial for making software development projects successful. Getting to know the business domain has always been a top priority for him when working on projects. As Domain-Driven Design addresses many of the issues that arise when working with complex domains, his interest for DDD comes as no surprise.
Patrik has been an active member of the Swedish DDD community for several years and is one of the co-founders of DDD Sverige, the Swedish DDD Interest Group. http://groups.google.com/group/dddsverige
