Modernising Legacy with DDD

Friday afternoon 14:00 - 16:00 CET (UTC+1)


Jimmy Nilsson


It’s not a secret any longer that Domain-Driven Design is a powerful tool when modernising legacy applications. But how to get started, how to stay on track and how to fulfil your endeavour? That is still hard to find guidance for.

In this workshop, we’ll work through a process of a renovation project with a focus on the architecture. Some parts we will move through quickly, other parts - the what and how - we will do hands-on in small group exercises, and with full group discussions afterwards. That way you’ll get different views, opinions, and suggestions to digest, not just what you experienced in your own exercises.

The overall process we will use looks like this:

  • Describe the current situation from a business centric perspective
  • Develop a new target situation
  • Develop a plan for going from current to target
  • Execute a first step for checking the plan
  • Adjust and repeat

The walkthrough will be filled with suggestions, tips, and ideas for how to effectively solve the challenges.

You’ll gain introductory knowledge of a great way to tackle legacy, that will help you on your path.
