This month we’ll have Jak Charlton (@JakCharlton) of Devlicio.us, the JetBrains academy fame doing an informal, interactive DDD talk.
Plenty of opportunity for you to ask questions and get a better grasp on how this DDD stuff might apply for you.
Here’s the basic outline of the session:
Practical Domain Driven Design, Message Based Architectures and CQRS
The original book on Domain Driven Design was subtitled "Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software", and even where a system does not merit "full on" DDD, many of the practices and principles can massively reduce the complexity of software, especially when combined with messaging and events.
This informal talk and Q&A will cover concepts including the Ubiquitous Language, Domain Experts, Aggregate Roots, and touch on more esoteric ideas including Message Based Architecture and Command Query Responsibility Separation
Here’s Jak’s bio for those who are interested:
