About Me

Steven Lauwers

Steven Lauwers

.NET/JavaScript developer

Hi, my name is Steven Lauwers. I have about 10 years of experience as a software development engineer. During these years I've been a software architect & developer for windows and web applications running on the .NET Framework. I primarily focus on web technologies like ASP.NET MVC, WebAPI, HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I'm very passionate about writing clean well tested code by using the SOLID design principles. I also have a good knowledge of SQL Server and I'm very experienced with NHibernate.

I have good problem solving skills which give me the ability to deliver a project on time by keeping a pragmatic eye on things.

My philosophy

Screaming architecture

When looking at the source repository of a system, it should be possible (even for non technical people) to discover what kind of system they're dealing with. When building a health-care system, then when someone is looking at the source repository, their first impression should be: "Oh, this is a heath-care system"? Rather than seeing all the technical details about the frameworks and libraries used in that system.


Slices, not layers

For too long we've lived under the tyranny of n-tier architectures. Building systems with complicated abstractions, needless indirection and more mocks in our tests than a comedy special. But there is a better way, thinking in terms of architectures of vertical slices instead horizontal layers. Once we embrace slices over layers, we open ourselves to a new, simpler architecture, changing how we build, organize and deploy systems.

Solid clean code

Every software developer is an author! An author is someone who practices writing as a profession. Developers write all day. Every developer can write code a computer can understand, but professional developers write code normal humans can understand. Clean code is a reader-focused development style that produces software that's easy to write, read and maintain.


Automate almost everything

What’s the best part about living in the modern age? For me, the answer is technology and automation. The ability to automate administrative tasks and inefficient business processes, that once took hours of manual labor, is a beautiful thing. Technology is knocking down barriers that previously stood in the way of productivity and profits. When it comes to application development, having an automated continuous integration system and an automated deploy is an absolute requirement.
