Domain Driven Design

After procrastinating for years due to its sheer size, I have finally picked up and started reading DDD. This is a must-read for developers of object-oriented software working on a complex domain. I found myself nodding on almost every sentence in this book, relating so much to my work at CityView, which has a super-complex domain of municipal software.

Summary: Developers and domain experts have a close relationship. Domain-driven design crunches a huge amount of knowledge into a model that reflects deep insight into the domain and a focus on the key concepts. This is a collaboration between those who know the domain and those who know how to build software. Because development is iterative, this collaboration must continue throughout the project’s life.
