Presentation: "Distinguishing Designs from Domains"

Track: Iconoclasts: Entertaining Rants / Time: Wednesday 12:05 - 13:05 / Location: Room 102/103

Has the DDD community embarked on an epic journey of wheel re-invention? The preface to Domain Driven Design claims that "surprisingly little has been written about [domain modelling and] how to do it" That isn't really true, so what are the DDD folks missing?

This session will explore why domain modelling became unfashionable and examine its long history and rich collection of techniques. Along the way we will discover some wheels ready-made for us to use.
