Workshop: Event-Oriented Domain-Driven Design

Grasp the core concepts of DDD strategic modeling, and put them to use. Learn to vigorously gather core concepts and separate irrelevant ones. Learn why strategic design is so essential. Develop the ability to determine when your domain models are composed correctly and when they required more rigorous design.

Context Mapping
Learn how to integrate with other subsystems using DDD and straightforward design techniques. Context Maps are not just drawings. Use them for cross-team communications, project thinking, learning, planning, and as an integration tool.

Architectures that support DDD
See how the Microservices Architecture, Ports and Adapters Architecture, along with an Event-Driven Architecture, can be used to support your DDD projects. Coupled with DDD, these architecture styles and patterns will support your microservices efforts.

Domain Events and Event Storming
Learn to use Domain Events and Event Storming for both “big picture” systems designs and “detail level” tactical designs. Exercises will lead to using and Event-Driven Architecture in Day-2 implementations.

Demystify effective aggregate designs with the use of a set of simple rules. Learn how to design object clusters for correct transactional consistency, performance, and high scalability.

Acceleration and Management Tools
Every project stakeholder knows the urgency of staying on task and on time. What techniques and tools can be used to accelerate your DDD effort, provide project estimates, time box domain modeling efforts, collaborate with domain experts, and how much time will that require? The answers are given and reenforced through practical guidelines.

What to expect and how to prepare
Understand that much of two days will be spent implementing using Java or C#. This is not a workshop for juniors, and at least 5-10 years of programming experience is recommended.

Computer setup
You are required to supply your own computer, programming environment with build and test facilities that you use regularly, and your thinking cap.
