Welcome to DDD eXchange

Eric Evans welcomed everyone at the DDD eXchange 2011 and provided an overview of the programme.

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.

Domain Models and Composite Applications

In this talk, recorded at the DDD eXchange 2011, Udi Dahan explains the use of Bounded Contexts to turn previously monolithic systems into composite applications, now with multiple lean and mean domain models - a new perspective on DDD awaits.

Udi Dahan

Udi Dahan is one of the world’s foremost experts on Service-Oriented Architecture and Domain-Driven Design and also the creator of NServiceBus, the most popular service bus for .NET.

REST and DDD

Dr Jim Webber -- co-author of REST in Practice -- delivers his talk on REST and Domain Driven Design

Jim Webber

Dr. Jim Webber is Chief Scientist with Neo Technology the company behind the popular open source graph database Neo4j, where he works on R&D for highly scalable graph databases and writes open source software.

DDD in a Functional Programming Language

This presentation very briefly introduces functional programming and contrasts it to other common styles of programming. We will then take a closer look at the features available to us in a modern functional programming language and see if, and how, these can support a modelling paradigm as required to do DDD.

Patrik Fredriksson

Patrik has been doing professional software development and mentoring for more than ten years. He has a particular passion for agile software design and architecture, software development productivity and developer craftsmanship. He is highly motivat

Assert.That(We.Understand)

Testing has finally be recognized as an important aspect of our profession. This session will look at testing in DDD based systems, after the introduction of domain events, and finally when using event sourcing.

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.

REST & APIs in the Guardian's DDD Processes

The Guardian have been using domain driven design for 5 years, Matt talks about how their approach to DDD has evolved. In particular this session focuses on lessons learned from applying DDD in the real world, and how moving towards a development model focussed on REST & APIs has caused the Guardian's DDD processes to evolve.

Matthew Wall

Mat Wall is lead software architect for guardian.co.uk, one of Europe's largest newspaper websites. He has lead the architecture team designing their new content management system and, more recently, the Guardian's Open Platform. He is currently focu

Park Bench Discussion

This Park Bench discussion will be chaired by Zi Makki.

Zi Makki

Just another .net developer that loves doing 'stuff' for the community.Zi is on the DDD committee and is helping out with WebDD wherever possible.

DDD Strategies for Moving Away from Legacy Systems

Often a team sets out to design a new piece of software using a domain model. At first they are focused on strategically valuable new features and modeling sessions clarify the new approach the business wants to take.
