Succeed with Domain-Driven Design (DDD), today's best-practice framework and common language for making design decisions that accelerate projects, keeping them on track while smoothly incorporating inevitable change. Vaughn Vernon's Implementing Domain-Driven Designbuilds on Eric Evans' seminal Domain-Driven Design, helping practitioners flatten the DDD learning curve, identify their best opportunities to apply DDD, and overcome common implementation pitfalls. Vernon presents concrete and realistic DDD techniques through examples from familiar domains, such as a Scrum-based project management application that integrates with a collaboration suite and security provider. Each principle is backed up by realistic Java examples, and all content is tied together by a single case study of a company charged with delivering a set of advanced software systems with DDD. Using this book's techniques, organizations can reduce time-to-market and build better software that is more flexible, more scalable, and better aligned to business goals. For software practitioners who are new to DDD, for those who've used DDD but not yet succeeded; and for DDD users who have experienced success and want to become even more effective. Readers will likely include software architects, systems anaysts, application developers, and project managers.
Vaughn Vernon is a veteran software craftsman, with more than 25 years of experience in software design, development, and architecture. Vaughn is a thought leader in simplifying software design and implementation using innovative methods in distributed computing. Vaughn has been programming with object-oriented languages since the 1980s and applying the tenets of Domain-Driven Design since his Smalltalk domain modeling days in the early 1990s. His experience spans a wide range of business domains, including aerospace, environmental, geospatial, insurance, medical and health care, and telecommunications. He has also succeeded in technical endeavors creating reusable frameworks, libraries, and implementation acceleration tools. Vaughn consults and speaks internationally, and has taught his Implementing Domain-Driven Design classes on multiple continents.
