QCon London 2009: What I've learned about DDD since the book - Eric Evans

I went to the QCon conference in London on Thursday, spending the majority of the day on Eric Evans’ Domain Driven Design track.

The opening presentation was by Eric Evans, himself, and was titled ‘What I’ve learned about DDD since the book’.

In the 5 years since the book was published, I've practiced DDD on various client projects, and I've continued to learn about what works, what doesn't work, and how to conceptualize and describe it all. Also, I've gained perspective and learned a great deal from the increasing number of expert practitioners of DDD who have emerged.

We’re currently reading Domain Driven Design in our technical book club in the ThoughtWorks Sydney office so I was intrigued to hear about Eric’s experiences with DDD and how those compared with ours.

The slides from the presentation are here.

What did I learn?

Gojko Adzic has a write up of this talk as well - a very informative talk and it’s definitely cool to hear the guy who coined the approach talking about it.
