Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software

Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software Description:

Eric Evans has written a fantastic book on how you can make the design of your software match your mental model of the problem domain you are addressing His book is very compatible with XP It is not about drawing pictures of a domain it is about how you think of it the language you use to talk about it and how you organize your software to reflect your improving understanding of it Eric thinks that learning about your problem domain is as likely to happen at the end of your project as at the beginning and so refactoring is a big part of his technique The book is a fun read Eric has lots of interesting stories and he has a way with words I see this book as essential reading for software developers it is a future classic b Ralph Johnson b author of i Design Patterns i If you don t think you are getting value from your investment in object oriented programming this book will tell you what you ve forgotten to do Eric Evans convincingly argues for the importance of domain modeling as the central focus of development and provides a solid framework and set of techniques for accomplishing it This is timeless wisdom and will hold up long after the methodologies du jour have gone out of fashion b Dave Collins b author of i Designing Object Oriented User Interfaces i Eric weaves real world experience modeling and building business applications into a practical useful book Written from the perspective of a trusted practitioner Eric s descriptions of ubiquitous language the benefits of sharing models with users object life cycle management logical and physical application structuring and the process and results of deep refactoring are major contributions to our field b Luke Hohmann b author of i Beyond Software Architecture i This book belongs on the shelf of every thoughtful software developer b Kent Beck b What Eric has managed to capture is a part of the design process that experienced object designers have always used but that we have been singularly unsuccessful as a group in conveying to the rest of the industry We ve given away bits and pieces of this knowledge but we ve never organized and systematized the principles of building domain logic This book is important b Kyle Brown b author of i Enterprise Java TM Programming with IBM R WebSphere R i The software development community widely acknowledges that domain modeling is central to software design Through domain models software developers are able to express rich functionality and translate it into a software implementation that truly serves the needs of its users But despite its obvious importance there are few practical resources that explain how to incorporate effective domain modeling into the software development process b i Domain Driven Design i b fills that need This is not a book about specific technologies It offers readers a systematic approach to domain driven design presenting an extensive set of design best practices experience based techniques and fundamental principles that facilitate the development of software projects facing complex domains Intertwining design and development practice this book incorporates numerous examples based on actual projects to illustrate the application of domain driven design to real world software development Readers learn how to use a domain model to make a complex development effort more focused and dynamic A core of best practices and standard patterns provides a common language for the development team A shift in emphasis refactoring not just the code but the model underlying the code in combination with the frequent iterations of Agile development leads to deeper insight into domains and enhanced communication between domain expert and programmer b i Domain Driven Design i b then builds on this foundation and addresses modeling and design for complex systems and larger organizations Specific topics covered include br Getting all team members to speak the same language Connecting model and implementation more deeply Sharpening key distinctions in a model Managing the lifecycle of a domain object Writing domain code that is safe to combine in elaborate ways Making complex code obvious and predictable Formulating a domain vision statement Distilling the core of a complex domain Digging out implicit concepts needed in the model Applying analysis patterns Relating design patterns to the model Maintaining model integrity in a large system Dealing with coexisting models on the same project Organizing systems with large scale structures Recognizing and responding to modeling breakthroughs With this book in hand object oriented developers system analysts and designers will have the guidance they need to organize and focus their work create rich and useful domain models and leverage those models into quality long lasting software implementations

Domain-Driven Design Reference: Definitions and Pattern Summaries

Domain-Driven Design Reference: Definitions and Pattern Summaries Description:

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 br 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 br 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 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 br 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 br This is an up to date quick reference to DDD br Eric Evans is the author of Domain Driven Design Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software He coined the term domain driven design DDD and laid out its principles in that book Since then he has continued to focus his energies in the area of DDD teaching and continuing to apply DDD on real projects as well as collaborating with other leaders in both the DDD community and the broader software development community

Peace in Motion: John Dewey and the Aesthetics of Well-Being

Peace in Motion: John Dewey and the Aesthetics of Well-Being Description:

In this book Yoram Lubling and Eric Evans offer a Deweyan reconstruction of our philosophical understanding of well being They begin with Dewey s critique of the philosophical fallacy to examine the legitimacy and value of theories of well being offered by traditional philosophy However such theories fail to provide an authentic account of well being due to a false understanding of i experience i as either epistemic or cognitive Next using Dewey s theory of experience they reconstruct happiness as the target for evaluation of well being This leads them to reject the traditional view of a private encapsulated self and to offer in its place a i transactionally situated self i which is an embodied enculturated agent Through their emphasis on the importance of the qualitative aspects of Dewey s understanding of a situation the i pervasive quality of the situation i emerges as the most plausible criterion for the evaluation of well being The authors use Dewey s theories of inquiry ethics value and art to establish the naturalistic conditions under which such i pervasive quality i enters into a situation as either settled or unsettled in other words as peace in motion Consequently a i problematic situation i becomes the primary condition under which all inquiry initiates whether it is in the context of science ethics values art or ordinary living Lubling and Evans conclude that a Deweyan account of well being involves i embodied knowing i instead of the traditional view of cognitive knowledge By using such an account it is possible to explain the conditions and mechanisms under which well being contributes to the enlargement and enrichment of individual and collective human experience
