Telling the Domain Story of the Future with Functional Programming

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


Mike Sperber and Henning Schwentner


When the high-level story of your project is told, you know where the sub-domains and boundaries are, and how and where your users interact with the system. You still need a domain model, though, so you can start building the software.

How does that actually work? You can stick close to the domain and thus get a model that maps the domain, but does not offer deep insights, and is brittle in the face of changes.

Fortunately, we can use techniques from functional programming – abstraction, algebra, and combinator models – to evolve the domain model into something supple that not only covers present requirements but the needs of the future as well. Moreover, these techniques are a great fit for Domain Storytelling.

Join Henning Schwentner (Domain Storytelling representative) and Mike Sperber (functional programming envoy) on a journey to tell the domain story of the future!
