Domain-Driven Design Distilled (Paperback) (Vaughn Vernon)
about this item
Using domain-driven design (DDD), software professionals can learn faster, refine their designs more effectively, and build far more successful software systems. However, DDD is widely misunderstood, and it can be intimidating. In Domain-Driven Design Distilled, leading software architect Vaughn Vernon offers a concise and accessible introduction to the DDD paradigm, demystifying all the ideas and techniques you need to explore and adopt it.
Vernon shows why it's important to engage with both developers and domain experts as you begin to develop your model's Ubiquitous Language, and how both groups can collaborate far more effectively. You'll learn how to segregate domain models using the powerful "Bounded Contexts" design pattern, and how to develop a Ubiquitous Language as the domain model within an explicitly bounded context.
Moving more deeply into strategic design, Vernon shows how Subdomains can help you deal with legacy systems far more effectively. Finally, he demonstrates the use of Context Mapping to integrate multiple Bounded Contexts, and to define both team relationships and technical mechanisms.
Domain-Driven Design Distilled brings DDD to life, so you can fully understand it -- and derive maximum value from it.
