  • Familiarity with any object-oriented language

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to build a coherent and robust architecture that can expand over time, easily accommodating changing requirements

Description

Modern development practices rarely use large up-front design phases, but if you are still using them, you’ve likely encountered problems with your design as you implement. Nowadays, you must create an architecture incrementally as you work, and you have to be able to easily modify that architecture as new requirements emerge. The solution is to build around a domain-focused metaphor that allows for incremental changes while maintaining coherence throughout.

Allen Holub walks you through developing an effective and coherent architecture incrementally as the code evolves. The techniques you’ll learn are essential when building effective microservice APIs and in any development shop where requirements change as you’re working.

Topics include:

  • How to develop effective microservices systems and APIs around bounded contexts
  • How to define effective user stories
  • How to develop a domain model and a system metaphor from those stories
  • How to design as you code in a way that maintains system coherence
  • How to write systems that can easily accommodate changing requirements
  • Using TDD-derived techniques to design as you build
