What we're about

This group provides a FREE forum where by Software Developers of all levels can discuss different topics in many different programming languages, software design, methodologies, improved development practices, shared experiences, and anything we can relate to our Art. The format of the meeting is a group discussion where we encourage everyone to participate. Usually the group focuses a selected section in a book or some other media format of choice. Books and discussion topics are nominated and chosen in a democratic fashion keeping the group going in the direction the group as a whole wants to go. Everyone is welcome to attend that wants to improve and learn from shared experiences or just wants to network. Many of us in the group feel we would not be the software developers we are today without this group.

Chapter 3 & 4 : Patterns, Principles, and Practices of Domain-Driven Design

Sony Interactive Entertainment

In this meetup we will be discussing the following book and chapters listed in the title : Patterns, Principles, and Practices of Domain-Driven Design by Scott Millett and Nick Tune Synopsis: This book presents the philosophy of Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in a down-to-earth and practical manner for experienced developers building applications for complex domains. A focus is placed on the principles and practices of decomposing a complex problem space as well as the implementation patterns and best practices for shaping a maintainable solution space. You will learn how to build effective domain models through the use of tactical patterns and how to retain their integrity by applying the strategic patterns of DDD. Full end-to-end coding examples demonstrate techniques for integrating a decomposed and distributed solution space while coding best practices and patterns advise you on how to architect applications for maintenance and scale. * Offers a thorough introduction to the philosophy of DDD for professional developers * Includes masses of code and examples of concept in action that other books have only covered theoretically * Covers the patterns of CQRS, Messaging, REST, Event Sourcing and Event-Driven Architectures * Also ideal for Java developers who want to better understand the implementation of DDD
