About this book
Domain-Driven Design (DDD) makes available a set of techniques and patterns that enable domain experts, architects, and developers to work together to decompose complex business problems into a set of well-factored, collaborating, and loosely coupled subsystems.
This practical guide will help you as a developer to put your knowledge to work in order to create elegant software designs that are enjoyable to work with and easy to reason about. You'll begin with an introduction to the concepts of domain-driven design and discover various ways to apply them in real-world scenarios. You'll also appreciate how DDD is extremely relevant when creating cloud-native solutions that employ modern techniques such as event-driven microservices and serverless architectures. As you advance through the chapters, you'll get acquainted with core DDD concepts such as the ubiquitous language, context maps, bounded contexts, strategic and tactical design, and anti-corruption layers. You'll also understand how to apply modern, lightweight modeling techniques such as domain storytelling and EventStorming before learning how to test-drive the system to create solutions that exhibit high degrees of internal quality.
By the end of this book, you'll be able to architect, design, and implement robust, resilient, and performant distributed software solutions.
