Greg will be presenting a revi of the mapping and modeling technique called "Event Storming." This is an interesting approach because many of the artifacts can be “interpreted” to suit the needs of the business users, developers, and testers. The sticky notes use in the modeling phase can then be transcribed into test scripts, Page Objects and other test artifacts. Event Storming has a few rules so it keeps the exploration moving while keeping the formalizing to a minimum. It can be enhanced with other techniques to capture the level of detail needed for the task. In addition, Event Storming can be used outside of DDD, on other projects, due to the closely related concept of Value Stream Mapping / Management or BPM.
