Advanced Strategic Domain-Driven Design
(Workshop, full day, Intermediate)
During this hands-on workshop you will learn the most important, and misunderstood, parts of Domain-Driven Design - domain discovery and strategic design - through hands-on facilitation patterns and design exercises, including the Business Model Canvas and autonomous architecture design.
After completing this workshop you will have a rich set of knowledge and tools for collaborating with business experts & stakeholders, understanding what is important to them, and constantly optimising the software systems you create around their needs. You will be able to apply all of these new skills immediately.
The skills learned in this workshop are of tremendous value to any technical lead or
software developer who aspires to positions of technical leadership or strategy. But they are also highly practical to those who work with software developers, including testers, BAs, product owners, scrum masters, project managers etc. This workshop works best with mixed groups.
