Learner <> Father <> Teacher


Roman Sachse started programming 16 years ago rather by accident shortly after founding his first company when he realized how much fun it was building the stuff he was working on by himself. This set him out on a lifelong journey of learning everything about software development and computer science and he was particularly surprised to realize that this branch of science strongly depends on two fields he was always interested in: people and communication. Roman is a proud father of three year old twin girls, holds a bachelors degree in Cognitive Science and a Masters degree in Computer Science and is currently mainly interested in Domain Driven Design, Functional Programming and the inner workings of software development teams.
Domain Driven UI
(Talk, Intermediate)
Domain Driven Design is neither a method nor a technology, it is a culture, a way of thinking about the needs of the customers first and putting an emphasis on their language, understandings and human interactions.
Thus DDD is not just for backend systems, but a semantic domain model also benefits the UI design. Unfortunately these semantics are often lost in translation when transferred to the frontend because the impedance mismatch is too high. Therefore the users that are actually using the system will not profit as much as they could from your design. I will show you a functional approach that allows you to actually reuse your domain types and behaviour with ease by combining CQRS and the Elm architecture with an overall messaging architecture.

No upfront knowledge in DDD, F# or functional programming necessary.
