What will you learn?

Everything from Big Picture EventStorming to mapping the basic DDD strategic patterns with Context Mapping. Use Impact Mapping or Wardley Mapping to align teams and improve your roadmap. Explore how the Cynefin framework can help you approach and model each subdomain differently. After these two workshop days, you will have enough hands-on experience to start designing sociotechnical architecture yourself. You will know how to create a modern loosely coupled architecture (using DDD) and improve collaboration between Business and IT.

Key takeaways

  1. Apply modern strategic DDD patterns to drive architectural innovation.
  2. Design functionally cohesive services and sociotechnical systems, and apply Cynefin framework for subdomain modeling.
  3. Leverage Big Picture EventStorming and Context Mapping techniques.
  4. Align teams, improve roadmaps, and create a shared language between IT and Business.
  5. Design functional, cohesive services within bounded contexts.
