Domain-Driven Design (DDD) is an approach to software development for complex businesses and other domains. DDD tackles that complexity by focusing the team's attention on knowledge of the domain, picking apart the most tricky, intricate problems with models, and shaping the software around those models. Easier said than done! The techniques of DDD help us approach this systematically. This reference gives a quick and authoritative summary of the key concepts of DDD. It is not meant as a learning introduction to the subject. Eric Evans' original book and a handful of others explain DDD in depth from different perspectives. On the other hand, we often need to scan a topic quickly or get the gist of a particular pattern. That is the purpose of this reference. It is complementary to the more discursive books. The starting point of this text was a set of excerpts from the original book by Eric Evans, Domain-Driven-Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software, 2004 - in particular, the pattern summaries, which were placed in the Creative Commons by Evans and the publisher, Pearson Education. In this reference, those original summaries have been updated and expanded with new content. The practice and understanding of DDD has not stood still over the past decade, and Evans has taken this chance to document some important refinements. Some of the patterns and definitions have been edited or rewritten by Evans to clarify the original intent. Three patterns have been added, describing concepts whose usefulness and importance has emerged in the intervening years. Also, the sequence and grouping of the topics has been changed significantly to better emphasize the core principles. This is an up-to-date, quick reference to DDD.
Real examples written in PHP showcasing DDD Architectural Styles, Tactical Design, and Bounded Context Integration About This Book Focuses on practical code rather than theory Full of real-world examples that you can apply to your own projects Shows how to build PHP apps using DDD principles Who This Book Is For This book is for PHP developers who want to apply a DDD mindset to their code. You should have a good understanding of PHP and some knowledge of DDD. This book doesn't dwell on the theory, but instead gives you the code that you need. What You Will Learn Correctly design all design elements of Domain-Driven Design with PHP Learn all tactical patterns to achieve a fully worked-out Domain-Driven Design Apply hexagonal architecture within your application Integrate bounded contexts in your applications Use REST and Messaging approaches In Detail Domain-Driven Design (DDD) has arrived in the PHP community, but for all the talk, there is very little real code. Without being in a training session and with no PHP real examples, learning DDD can be challenging. This book changes all that. It details how to implement tactical DDD patterns and gives full examples of topics such as integrating Bounded Contexts with REST, and DDD messaging strategies. In this book, the authors show you, with tons of details and examples, how to properly design Entities, Value Objects, Services, Domain Events, Aggregates, Factories, Repositories, Services, and Application Services with PHP. They show how to apply Hexagonal Architecture within your application whether you use an open source framework or your own. Style and approach This highly practical book shows developers how to apply domain-driven design principles to PHP. It is full of solid code examples to work through.

Methods for managing complex software construction following the practices, principles and patterns of Domain-Driven Design with code examples in C# This book presents the philosophy of Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in a down-to-earth and practical manner for experienced developers building applications for complex domains. A focus is placed on the principles and practices of decomposing a complex problem space as well as the implementation patterns and best practices for shaping a maintainable solution space. You will learn how to build effective domain models through the use of tactical patterns and how to retain their integrity by applying the strategic patterns of DDD. Full end-to-end coding examples demonstrate techniques for integrating a decomposed and distributed solution space while coding best practices and patterns advise you on how to architect applications for maintenance and scale. Offers a thorough introduction to the philosophy of DDD for professional developers Includes masses of code and examples of concept in action that other books have only covered theoretically Covers the patterns of CQRS, Messaging, REST, Event Sourcing and Event-Driven Architectures Also ideal for Java developers who want to better understand the implementation of DDD

In this new book, leading practitioner Greg Young shows how to incorporate effective domain modeling throughout the software development process, designing large and complex systems so they can be built more efficiently, dynamically, and successfully. Young takes the next steps beyond the DDD principles and best practices introduced by Eric Evans in Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software. One step at a time, he explains how to use DDD with Command-Query Responsibility Separation (CQRS) to select the right design solutions and make them work in the real world. System designers and architects will learn how CQRS and event sourcing can simplify construction, decentralize decision-making, and make system development more flexible and responsive. Young also shows how DDD and CQRS make it possible to coordinate larger development teams without higher levels of management maturity. To write this book, Young has drawn on his widely-praised 3-day course on CQRS, Domain Events, Event Sourcing, and DDD. He answers many of the questions course participants have raised, shows how to overcome common architectural obstacles to DDD, and guides professionals in solving the #1 problem they've encountered: translating DDD's abstract concepts into concrete solutions.
Pro Agile .NET Development with SCRUM guides you through a real-world ASP.NET project and shows how agile methodology is put into practice. There is plenty of literature on the theory behind agile methodologies, but no book on the market takes the concepts of agile practices and applies these in a practical manner to an end-to-end ASP.NET project, especially the estimating, requirements and management aspects of a project. Pro Agile .NET Development with SCRUM takes you through the initial stages of a project—gathering requirements and setting up an environment—through to the development and deployment stages using an agile iterative approach: namely, Scrum. In the book, you'll focus on delivering an enterprise-level ASP.NET project. Each chapter is in iterations or sprints, putting into practice the features of agile—user stories, test-driven development (TDD), behavior-driven development (BDD), continuous integration, user acceptance testing, extreme programming, Scrum, design patterns and principles, inside-out development, lean developent, KanBan boards, and more. An appendix features code katas designed for the reader to get up-to-speed with some of the features of extreme programming, while also showcasing popular open-source frameworks to assist in automated testing and mocking. In addition, popular open-source architectural foundation projects such as S#arp and NCommons are demonstrated to allow you to base future projects on these frameworks, which already have many best-practice design patterns and principles built in.

In OBJECT THINKING, esteemed object technologist David West contends that the mindset makes the programmer—not the tools and techniques. Delving into the history, philosophy, and even politics of object-oriented programming, West reveals how the best programmers rely on analysis and conceptualization—on thinking—rather than formal process and methods. Both provocative and pragmatic, this book gives form to what’s primarily been an oral tradition among the field’s revolutionary thinkers—and it illustrates specific object-behavior practices that you can adopt for true object design and superior results. Gain an in-depth understanding of: Prerequisites and principles of object thinking. Object knowledge implicit in eXtreme Programming (XP) and Agile software development. Object conceptualization and modeling. Metaphors, vocabulary, and design for object development. Learn viable techniques for: Decomposing complex domains in terms of objects. Identifying object relationships, interactions, and constraints. Relating object behavior to internal structure and implementation design. Incorporating object thinking into XP and Agile practice.
