1 DAY CONFERENCE

DDD eXchange NYC

Topics covered at #DDDxNYC

Tuesday, 17th September at DUMBO Loft, New York City

7 experts. will be speaking. Starts at 4:00 AM.

Want to keep up to date with the latest developments, in Domain Driven Design? Are you keen to learn and share skills with 200+ developers passionate about domain driven design?

Join Skills Matter and the father of DDD; Eric Evans, Greg Young (creator of CQRS), Vaughn Vernon (author of Implementing DDD) and Alberto Brandolini for an unmissable opportunity to hear about DDD and it's roadmap.

It's been 10 years since Eric Evans' book exploring Domain Driven Design was published. Eric argues the landscape has drastically changed in those 10 years; with greater emphasis on Event Sourcing and CQRS amongst the most dramatic changes. And with Vaughn Vernon's book 'Implementing DDD', there has been a renewed sense of importance attached to DDD in software.

Opening & Welcome

Eric Evans gives a brief welcome to everyone attending the first DDD eXchange in NYC, sharing his vision for the day.

Eric Evans

Eric Evans, author of Domain-driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software is a thought leader in software design, domain driven design and domain modeling and particularly focuses on strategic design.

Focusing the Core Domain: Domain-Driven Design Case Study

Do you want to learn how to use strategic design to address important pain-points by turning them in a simple problem? Father of DDD, Eric Evans explains how he helped the team use Domain Driven Design and the Strategic Design tools of DDD to decide what to do, and how they leveraged established formalisms to do something quite original.

Simplifying integration with event-centric domain models

In this talk, we'll focus on the healthcare industry, and look at how event-centric domain models can make both batch and real-time integration significantly easier and more reliable. We'll also look at how to avoid the unnecessary coupling often introduced when integrating with third party systems with responsibilities which crosses bounded contexts.

Very few systems complex enough to justify the use of DDD live in a vacuum, and integration with third parties or other internal systems is often overlooked. Often the cost of integrating can be greater than the cost of building a new system in the first place.

James Nugent

James is a software developer and consultant living in Bath, England. He often works on systems in industries with significant regulatory constraints, including pharmaceutical manufacturing, healthcare and energy. He is currently working on the op

DOCUMENT BASED MESSAGING AND ANALYSIS

Greg Young gives a session on document based messaging and analysis at the DDD eXchange NYC.

Greg Young

Greg Young coined the term "CQRS" (Command Query Responsibility Segregation) and it was instantly picked up by the community who have elaborated upon it ever since.

Rethinking Enterprise Software

After being exposed to so many good ideas in the past two years, Alberto Brandolini found that he could not design systems like he used to. Like a cook adding new spices to a traditional recipe, Alberto explores unconventional modelling techniques derived from CQRS, Event Sourcing, Kanban, Management 3.0 and Theory of Constraints.

Alberto Brandolini

Alberto Brandolini is a 360° consultant in the Information Technology field. Asserting that problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that originated them, Alberto switches perspective frequently assuming the architect, mentor, coach, manager or developer point of view.

How DDD became essential in the (highly competitive) energy sector

Domain models and their APIs, which provide firm foundations for innovative customizations, have emerged as major product differentiators in the billion dollar shrink-wrap software market of the oil and gas industry. Robert will explain why.

Exploring for oil is an expensive business, getting it out of the ground even more so. Discovering, describing and simulating oil reservoirs is a competitive software-intensive activity. The dominant players must provide unique advantages within the constraints of off-the-shelf software systems.

In this talk, Robert will illustrate the benefits and challenges – both technical and cultural – encountered by one company in applying DDD to “shared earth models” which were hitherto implicitly encoded in legacy systems. I’ll also discuss the all-important business imperatives that have motivated the adoption of domain modelling in the oil and gas software industry.

Robert Smallshire

Robert Smallshire is a founding director of Sixty North, a software product and consulting business in Norway . Robert has worked in senior architecture and technical management roles for several software companies providing tools in the energy secto

Reactive DDD with Scala and Akka

Would you like to learn how to achieve squeezing more out of our expanding number of cores, but ones that are delivering less overall leaps in speed on individual processors?

In this talk, Vaughn will explore the use of the Actor Model with DDD. He will explain how the basic ideas of the Actor Model and DDD can greatly simplify our ability to comprehend and use concurrency and distribution.

Vaughn Vernon

Vaughn is a veteran software craftsman, with more than 25 years of experience in software design, development, and architecture. He is a thought leader in simplifying software design and implementation using innovative methods.

DUMBO Loft

Built in 1891, during a major period of development when manufacturers were making DUMBO into one of the city’s most important industrial neighbourhoods, the structure contributes to the district through its architecture, structure, and the fact that its owners played a significant role in the area’s history.

Set between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, DUMBO is the heart of the Tech area in NY, dubbed 'Silicon Alley'. The immediate area hosts a range of hip bars and cafes.

The space is a 5 minute walk from the York Street F and High Street A/C.
