What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in learning about Domain-driven design(DDD). All skill levels are welcome. I started this group so we can share our experiences and collectively learn about software modeling and design.

Cadence & Location:

Let's try and meet once a month and see how we can learn and get better together. My plan is to rotate the Meetup across locations in SoCal. The last two meet ups were based in Irvine. I am planning to alternate between Irvine, LA, Inland Empire and San Diego based on interest and hosting options.

About Domain-Driven Design:

Domain-Driven Design is a set of software disciplines to help build complex software by creating a software model that's based on the core business concepts. One that constantly evolves with the changes. The book, "Domain-Driven Design - Tackling complexity in the heart of Software" fondly referred to as the blue book, was written by Eric Evans in 2004.

If we can have a clear and constant collaboration between between technical and domain experts, then we can get to solving the problem and create software that aligns with the business. DDD provides a structure of practices and terminology to help making design decisions that focus more on the behavior.

Do you need Child Care?

Topic: Socially Engineering Your Pathway to a Better Team

In the context of information security, social engineering is a practice that can help hackers to acquire personal information, insights, and access. Social engineering techniques can also be used by hackers and non-hackers alike to become more skilled at observing the people around them and making informed decisions that are based on these observations. In this session, you will learn how to take a social engineering approach towards improving your team dynamics, including:

- Strategies for assessing your team’s current strengths and areas of improvement.
- Recommendations for developing an action plan to initiate change.
- Strategies for using ongoing observation techniques to effectively manage change.
