A Tech Principal at Thoughtworks and author and online trainer for O'Reilly, Andrew specialises in Java / JVM technologies, agile delivery, build tools and automation, and domain driven design.
Experienced across the software development lifecycle and in many sectors what motivates him is the efficient delivery of large-scale software solutions, fulfilling complex user needs. He understands that people, architecture, process and tooling all have key roles to play in achieving this. Andrew has a passion for open source software and its communities. He has been involved with OSS to a greater or lesser extent since his career began; as a user, contributor, expert group member, or paid advocate - most famously as one of the Jenkins JobDSL originators.
Andrew enjoys sharing his experience as much as possible. This sharing is not only seen in his formal consulting engagements, but also informally through mentoring, books, online training, blog posts, conferences (speaking and organising), and open-sourcing his code. His next book "Facilitating Software Architecture" is making its way onto the internet, a chapter at a time.
