Domain-Driven Design Distilled

Vaughn Vernon, Veteran Software Craftsman, Author, Trainer, Consultant

Audience: Developers

Technical level: Introductory

Domain-Driven Design (DDD) software modeling delivers powerful results in practice, not just in theory, which is why architects and developers worldwide are rapidly moving to adopt it. Now there’s an accessible guide to the basics of DDD: What it is, what problems it solves, how it works, and how to quickly gain value from it.

Concise, readable, and actionable, Domain-Driven Design Distilled never buries you in detail–it focuses on what you need to know to get results. Vaughn Vernon, author of the best-selling Implementing Domain-Driven Design, draws on his twenty years of experience applying DDD principles to real-world situations. He is uniquely well-qualified to demystify its complexities, illuminate its subtleties, and help you solve the problems you might encounter.

The free PDF includes a subset of the book (chapters 1 and 6; 31 pages): “DDD for Me,” which explains what DDD can do for you and your organization, and “Tactical Design with Domain Events”.

This book is for everyone interested in learning the most important DDD aspects and tools and in learning quickly. The most common readers are software architects and software developers who will put DDD into practice on projects.
