Vaughn Vernon on DDD, microservices, and reactive programming

My approach had to show not just the “what,” but even more so the “how.”

The birth of domain-driven design dates back to 2003. Eric Evans’ book “Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software” was a milestone and is still widely read today. The book “Implementing Domain-Driven Design” by Vaughn Vernon has also contributed significantly to the spread of DDD. We talked to Vaughn about the motivation and core ideas behind DDD and its relationship to microservices and reactive architectures.

Interview with Jimmy Nilsson, author of "Applying Domain-Driven Design and Patterns"

“It takes a day or two to gain from DDD, but a lifetime to master”

What is so appealing about Domain-driven Design and what are the typical problems one faces when trying to apply it to real projects? In the context of the microservices debate, there is a sort of revival of the DDD principles. What is the difference between DDD and microservces? We invited Jimmy Nilsson, author of “Applying Domain-Driven Design and Patterns” to answer all these questions and more.
