Strategic Domain-Driven Design: Analysis, Architecture, and Modelling

In this 2 day course, intended for beginner and intermediate DDD practitioners, Max and Kenny will show you how to bridge the gap between business needs and software architecture. This is a highly-practical and hands-on workshop where you will be working in groups to analyze scenarios, identify design smells, and apply strategic DDD principles and patterns to design and evolve architectures.


On the practical side, you'll see how to work with Event Storming to map out business needs, and discover new opportunities in the domain. Then, you'll see how to use Event Storms as the basis for slicing up the business into domains and subdomains which are the candidates for software architecture and team boundaries (using various flavours of Event Storming (big picture, process modelling, software-design).

You'll also get a chance to analyze scenarios presented in other formats like Domain Message Flow Modelling and the Bounded Context Canvas. And you'll get to switch into the architect role and design architectures with these techniques yourself.

Throughout this course, you'll get to experience a diverse number of scenarios from different domains, based on the real world experiences of Max and Kenny. While the course is largely hands-on, you will also learn the necessary theory even if you have no previous experience of Domain-Driven Design.

Hi, I'm Kenny Baas-Schwegler. I believe in collaborative software design where 'every voice shapes the software’. Leveraging Team Topologies and a domain-driven design approach, I facilitate clearer communication between stakeholders and software creators by collaborative modelling and deep democracy, decoding complexities, resolving conflicts and ensuring software remains agile to business demands.

In my roles as an independent software consultant, tech lead, and software architect, I catalyse organisations and teams towards independently designing and building sustainable and resilient software architectures."
