Abstract

When we model, we tend to do it for ourselves: gain understanding, capture the business language, and turn it into running code. But are we missing opportunities to do something more with our models? What if, instead of mirroring the business, our models could transform it? Let’s find out how a healthy obsession with language and metaphor can step up from “domain-driven” to “driving the domain”.
