This Thursday's Matter is ... Domain-Driven Design. Join Roman Sachse to learn a functional approach to DDD that allows you to actually reuse your carefully crafted domain types and behaviour with ease by leveraging tools like F#, the SAFE-Stack, Elm architecture, and CQRS/Event-Sourcing.
Thursday's Matter is a virtual meetup on the topics that truly matter to today's developers.
Join us every Thursday when we'll be joined by an expert from around the globe. Each week we'll explore topics such as functional languages, mobile development, agile methodologies and machine learning.
THE FORMAT A 40-minute expert talk followed by a Q&A session
Domain Driven Design is a way of thinking about the needs of the customers first and putting an emphasis on their language, understandings and human interactions. The outcome of this approach is mostly applied to the backend of applications because this is where most of the business logic resides, but a semantic domain model also benefits the UI design. Unfortunately these semantics are often lost in translation when transferred to the frontend because the impedance mismatch is too high. Therefore the users that are actually using the system will not profit as much as they could from your design. I will show you a functional approach that allows you to actually reuse your carefully crafted domain types and behaviour with ease by leveraging F# and the SAFE-Stack to combine CQRS/Event-Sourcing on the backend and the Elm architecture on the frontend with an overall messaging architecture.
Learner <> Father <> Teacher. Roman Sachse started programming 19 years ago rather by accident shortly after founding his first company when he realized how much fun it was building the stuff he was working on by himself. This set him out on a lifelong journey of learning everything about software development and computer science and he was particularly surprised to realize that this branch of science strongly depends on two fields he was always interested in: people and communication. Roman is a proud father of three year old twin girls, holds a bachelors degree in Cognitive Science and a Masters degree in Computer Science and is currently mainly interested in Domain Driven Design, Functional Programming and the inner workings of software development teams.
