Hello Berlin Domain Linguists,

Summer in the city, Mathias Verraes in the city :)

we're happy that Mathias did agree to give another talk for us on such short notice. Here's how it should ideally proceed:

18:30h: Socializing, Chatting and Networking

19:00h: Starting with the talk

2x:xxh: QA, Socializing and after that maybe going out for a drink.

If you want to twitter, it'd be nice to use our @DDDBER handle ... and give some props to @mathiasverraes himself :)

Talk: Context Mapping & Strategic Decision Making

Software design is often limited to two modi operandi: low level code, and high level technical architecture diagrams. Domain-Driven Design proposes Context Mapping as another view on our systems, based on linguistic relations, models, and contexts. Let's discuss how to start drawing Context Maps and turn them to good use.

Speaker: Mathias Verraes ( @mathiasverraes | | )

Mathias Verraes advises companies on building software for complex environments. This involves primarily analysis and modelling, but also code, architecture, testing, and refactoring “unmaintainable” systems. He has worked with clients in Finance, Automotive, Government, Logistics, E-Commerce, and more. He teaches Domain-Driven Design courses and co-organises the DDD Europe conference. When he’s not working, he’s at home in Kortrijk, Belgium, helping his two sons build crazy Lego train tracks.
