Thanks for today’s Microservices presentation. That was brilliant!

The talk was very interesting. It would be nice to have a deeper dive into the topic. Maybe with some practical examples

The ‘What’ and the ‘Why’?

Domain Drive Design (DDD) provides concepts to help you get started using a microservices application by expressing the problems you have, as domains. It advocates modelling based on the reality of the business as relevant to your cases. DDD is a development approach that deeply values the domain model and connects it to the implementation.  

To simplify/ solve your problem domain, adopting a Command–query separation (CQRS) pattern is a massive benefit that reduces the leakage and interleaving that begins to occur when utilizing the same model for your write-side as your read-side. CQRS seeks to relieve the tension between both sides by separating (decoupling logically and possibly physically) the write-side and read-side of your system. 

Please join us for another great fun learning experience that is completely free to attend!

It would be great to see you all there, old faces and new!

  • Domain Model                                                                    
  • Aggregate (and aggregate root)
  • Value objects, entities, services
  • Bounded context
  • Ubiquitous language
  • Events? 


  • Command (Command Handlers)
