Marijn will come and talk us about how to expose ourselves to collaborative modeling. The basic premise of DDD is that the software we develop has to be based on a conceptual model that we shape together with domain experts. In short: the way experts reason about the problem is how we do it in code too. But how do you achieve that?
In this workshop, you will learn how to visualize the model of existing software. Then we will introduce several changes step by step to refine the model to be more suitable for the problems we want to solve.
During these exercises, you will get familiar with methods to look at problems from different angles. Through various tips, you will find ways to facilitate the process of 'Collaborative Modeling'. While doing this we will apply a number of tactical DDD patterns and experience the advantages and disadvantages of doing so.
The only requirement for the workshop is an open mind. Theoretical knowledge of Domain Driven Design is not required. And it would be great to have domain experts join the session too, so do not worry if you do not know how to program.
Marijn teaches people of different backgrounds the skill of doing the things that matter in environments that are critical to performance.
Often his work involves organizations, software and customers. He brings these worlds together while teaching you and your colleagues how to do so.
Judge him on added value, it's the only metric that matters. You may call him a consultant, coach, trainer and entrepreneur, because that's what he is.
