For over a decade Martin has been working in complex domains like energy trading, telecommunication or wind tunnel organization. As a coder, he has had a soft spot for readable and testable APIs and enjoys working with sophisticated but lean state machines and process engines. As a domain coder, he is into Domain-Driven Design and integrates methods which shift his focus from technology to the user value of what he does. Martin is a contributor to several projects on GitHub and speaks at meetups and conferences like ExploreDDD, O'Reilly and KanDDDinsky.
He blog's at plexiti.com and publishes in magazines like InfoQ and OBJEKTspektrum, a well-read german periodical for which he is an editorial member. In his hometown Vienna he organises meetups around Microservices and DDD.

Into and onto de|coding domain language.
At the age of ten Martin fell in love with coding. Later he left his love and studied business and law. Only to find out: that’s awesome for programming business software! In the 15 years since then he talked to energy traders, telecom people, wind tunnel experts and many others. Those conversations formed a hands-on domain de|coder with a passion for DDD and a soft spot for modeling services as little state machines around business capabilities. Martin is also a trainer with experience in 50+ companies and 10+ countries. He regularly speaks at meetups and conferences across Europe - and from time to time in the US.
