Domain-driven Design Deconstructed


Comments are closed.

The last 15 minutes presented concepts in DDD that I wish the rest of the talk reflected.

The first half of the talk focused largely on what DDD isn't and nomenclature, but didn't provide a solid foundation of understanding.

A plethora of books, talks, and videos were referenced, which could have been more of. Footnote. I would have liked to see a more top down approach to explaining the concepts of domain-driven design.

This was definitely a topic worth discussing. However, I think it would have been better to start off with an overview of the main concepts of DDD.

Slides were funny and provided some chuckles. Thanks, Andrew!

While I'm new to DDD, the "meat" of his presentation was in the last 20 minutes. Gave me a lot to digest and plenty of ammo as to benefits of DD. Very well done, I would only suggest condensing the first half in the like 10-15 minutes.

Great overview of Domain Driven Design. One hour is not long enough to cover this topic, but Andrew did a great job of providing an overview and reviewing resources for digging deeper. I loved how he described three popular DDD books as "Old Testament, New Testamant, and Catechism", that was a great analogy for quickly giving us a handle. So far, this has been my favorite talk.

I knew nothing about DDD before this talk and now understand how to get started with it. The talk was a little slow to start and could have benefitted from a few more concrete example. However, there are definitely some techniques that I can use in my next design meeting so I learned something useful.

Great, great, great!

Some of the slides were a bit distracting, but Simpsons GIFs sure beat a wall of text.

As an overview talk, this is pretty good. Good emphasis on ubiquitous language. With such a technical topic like this, I'd prefer to see less gifs and memes, but I guess I'm in a minority :) otherwise great! Thanks.

This talk was the exactly-correct balance for me. The relatively long intro of books and what DDD isn't, is what was of most use to me. I've read a bit of Evans and Vaughan (Old and New Testaments in the talk) and stopped. They're relatively old. Are the books a waste of time or not? So now, thanks to Andrew, I know where and how things fit together, and that YES the modern DDD approaches are worth exploring.
