Developer training: Domain-Driven Design Foundation (DDD)

Step up your Agile and DevOps game. This 2-day training course teaches you the basics of Domain-Driven Design. Learn how to design, model, and create software that focuses on underlying business concerns and creates a shared language between business stakeholders and the team creating software.

A shared language between business and IT professionals

Have you read a lot about Domain-Driven Design (DDD) but don’t know where to start? Are you in an Agile or DevOps team but don’t know what your business stakeholders' concerns are? Or is your organization Agile yet too many handovers still bring the wrong ideas to production? Want to move to a microservices architecture, but you're unsure whether this is the right way to go?

Then our DDD Foundation is just the thing you need. This 2-day training offers you first-hand experience with Domain-Driven Design, so you can directly implement it within your own context and domain.

"Creating the context map was such a valuable part of the training." - Software Developer

The Domain-Driven Design (DDD) training is perfect for...

This Domain-Driven Design training is perfect for everyone involved in creating software, from software architects to product owners, from scrum masters to business analysts, testers, and software engineers. The training starts with the foundation of DDD, so you do not need to know all the ins and outs yet. However, if you do want to come prepared, we recommend you read the free e-book The Anatomy Of Domain-Driven Design or go ahead and start with the book 'Domain-Driven Design' by Eric Evans.
