Who is this presentation for?

  • Software architects interested in applying the domain-driven design methodology



Prerequisite knowledge

  • A basic understanding of domain-driven design concepts (e.g., ubiquitous language, bounded context, and subdomains)

What you'll learn

  • Explore domain-driven design
  • Learn what parts of the DDD methodology need to be adapted to fast-changing companies, especially startups


It turns out that domain-driven design is not just for cargo shipping. Vladik Khononov explains how he and his team embraced domain-driven design (DDD) (with very limited resources and a very short time to market) at Plexop, a large-scale marketing system that spans over a dozen different business domains. Join in to learn how DDD allowed the team to manage business complexities, find out strategies for defining context boundaries, explore lessons learned the hard way, and discover where they had to adapt the DDD methodology to fit the company’s needs.
