DDD Europe after party: Iterating on domain models with Marijn Huizendveld

Details

Iterating on domain models
=======================

The first model a team comes up with often leads them down a particular path. That isn't much of a problem if the first model is any good. But often our first ideas aren't our best. How can you prevent bias towards your initial approach? What could you do to break free from the boundaries you first imagined? In this hands-on you'll be working on a single problem but you'll be forced to re-imagine it multiple times with different constraints. In each round you'll be limited in such a way that you'll have to get creative and come up with vastly different models for the same problem space. At the end you'll see what the power is of an enabling constraint. The Monday after the conference you'll know that with a little digging and thinking you can come up with entirely different models for about any problem space.

About Marijn Huizendveld
————————————

In a small backstreet of Tokyo lives a man named Aki, a 78 years old former chef. Aki spent most of his life trying to perfectly cook the rice he buys from his friend Mato. He's been at it for 56 years now, and still searches for ways to improve his cooking methods. There is probably not too much anybody else could tell Aki about cooking this specific type of rice. When it comes to his process, Aki's understanding is unrivaled.

Be like Aki, be your domain.

If you don't want to spend the better part of 6 decades getting there, come and hear me share my experiences in the field of domain driven design and the lessons I've learned.
