Infinite State Machine
Since my studies of Computational Linguistics at the University of Heidelberg, the concept of language and its semantics always has been an important part of my studies. Hence the interest in the principles of Domain-Driven-Design just felt natural. During my career I have been working on the various loose ends of technology: infrastructure automation, back-end and front-end code, modelling, architecture, mobile development, test automation, system administration and teaching. I gathered experiences in the fields of Industrial Production, Travel, Insurance and E-Commerce. As a Software Architect @ FlixBus, currently my main interest lies in understanding the effects of organisation structures on emerging software architectures. And when I am not doing that, I am visiting art exhibitions, playing Basketball or cooking meals for our friends with my beloved wife.
The evolution of Bounded Contexts - or how to design systems for autonomy
Since we have started our domain-driven software modernisation journey at FlixBus almost 2 years ago, we learned a lot. Especially on how different architectural patterns affect the organisational communication structures, and also how implementing collaborative learning techniques fed back into the emerging architecture - the inverse Conway effect. In this talk I will explore how those effects can be leveraged to enable autonomous end-to-end delivery for larger IT organisations and systems in general and give detailed examples on how to find those crucial "Autonomy Boundaries" and how to influence and perturbate the systems and sub-systems so that they (hopefully) align themselves with those boundaries.
