Domain-Driven Design Workshop

Intensive three day workshop with Mathias Verraes

Software design can have a very slow feedback loop: by the time you find out if the architectural and design decisions you made were the right ones, it may be too late for drastic changes. As developers, we tend to phrase all problems as technical problems, which can be sufficiently challenging in their own right. We tend to lose sight of the underlying business concerns.

Domain-Driven Design is total approach to building software for complex domains. It’s a way of thinking that helps you decide how to tackle complexity, and where to focus your efforts. By putting the business at the heart of our software, and keeping our domain model closely tight to our understanding of the business, we can create value at a much deeper level.

In this workshop, we’ll explore this central premise of Domain-Driven Design. We’ll take a practical approach: participants will be solving real-world problems right away:

Come and join a small group of developers (15 attendees) learning DDD in a hands-on workshop.


The workshop is not tied to any specific programming language. Good knowledge of object-oriented programming is required.
