Our inaugural virtual meetup will explore how Domain-Driven Design brings business value.

Domain-Driven Design (DDD) is a methodology for creating software systems for complex business environments. DDD has steadily gained more adoption over the past 20 years. It’s become popular across finance, supply chain, government, automotive, aviation, e-commerce, SaaS, and all software-intensive industries. It has spawned countless books, conferences, and meetups. Its influence is felt in adjacent concepts like the microservices movement, Team Topologies, Eventstorming, and Eventsourcing.

Because DDD spans everything from the micro-level of code, to system architecture, to large-scale integration, to team organisation and product development approaches, and because it deals with complex domains, it can be hard to see how it actually helps organisations become more competitive. In this session, we’ll demystify how DDD turns your software from a cost-centre to a differentiator.

This session aims at newcomers to DDD, to decision-makers with or without a background in software engineering, and to experienced DDD’ers who want to introduce it in their organisation.
