Domain-driven design offers a number of solutions to improve software development, but they only work if developers collaborate closely with domain experts. In this workshop, hosted by two product- and design-experts from the technology company INNOQ, you learn, how modern approaches and methodologies are going to improve your product development.
About the Workshop
Date&Location: 27. November 2019 – Startplatz, Cologne
Trainer: Aminata Sidibe & Oliver Tigges
This workshop is part of our Pre-Conference Workshop Day for Digitale Leute Summit 2019.
Anyone who wants to develop high-quality and sustainable software products should not start by evaluating technologies or frameworks. The first step should be to build and establish a common language throughout the entire team. This is essential to become able to discuss concepts, ideas and solutions with domain experts.
In this workshop, we will first discuss the basic ideas, concepts and patterns of domain-driven design, such as ubiquitous language, bounded contexts and domain Events. In a subsequent practical part, we use event storming and domain storytelling as two modern approaches that help technical experts, developers and all other project participants to develop a mutual understanding of a business domain and thus develop better products.
After the workshop, participants will:
- Understand the motivation and basic principles of domain-driven design.
- Have an overview of the most important concepts and patterns of domain-driven design.
- Close the communication gaps between business, development and other project members.
- Understand how to discover a domain using domain storytelling.
- Organize and conduct event storming workshops for your products.
Who should attend
This workshop is designed for everyone who aims to discover and build new or better products. You will learn about the frameworks, mindsets, and methods for taking a vision to success and solving problems.
