Introduction to Domain Driven Design

When developing software, we sometimes tend to play down problems to create simple solutions. In practice, things over time turn out not to be as simple as assumed. The domain is usually way more complicated than anticipated. Security constraints tend to impact on the design, etc.

Domain-driven design (DDD) is an approach to software development for complex needs by connecting the architecture and implementation to an evolving model of the problem domain. It can be applied as an agile approach to software development whilst recognising complexity.

Mastering DDD and working from your domain will help you develop higher quality software products that will be better maintainable in the long run. It will guide your architecture and component decisions.


Get an overview of Domain Driven Design; learn the basic concepts and modelling techniques like Domains, Bounded Contexts, Aggregates, Context Mapping, and Event Storming.


We introduce Domain Driven Design as an approach to modelling and application architecture. We will guide you through the different techniques and patterns with lively hands-on modelling exercises.

This workshop focuses on the domain modelling aspect of DDD. Implementation and coding aspects are covered by the Implementing Domain Driven Design workshop.

Audience & prerequisites

Software developers, testers, analysts, architects, product owners, agile coaches; this workshop is suitable both for more junior participants who want to grow and for more senior participants who’d like to sharpen their modelling skills.

Having at least a year of experience in a software development environment is recommended.
