We'll try something new this time. A Domain Driven Design Open Space. Some of you probably know what an open space is, but for those of you who don't, here is a short introduction:
An open space is a way to facilitate collaboration between individuals around a central theme through self-organization, in a way that maximizes each individual's learning.
Everyone is encouraged to write down, on a post-it, whatever topics he is interested, curious or passionate about. After a few minutes, everyone queues up and gets a chance to present one of their topics, place it on an empty time slot on the market place, and re-queue if they have more topics.
After the topics are scheduled you are free to attend any topic that you find interesting.

For this open space, we'll add one constraint, the topics should be DDD related. Some example topics could be:
- I've tried to do an event storming session at my company, but it failed completely, what can I try next time?
- I have a problem with a domain problem, can someone help me with it?
- We have a bad legacy application, should I abandon the idea of applying DDD to improve it?
