Abstract

Many have suggested using domain-driven design (DDD) to help define the functional scope of microservices. But how to apply this idea in practice is not clear to everyone. DDD is a domain modeling technique created in the early 2000s. Microservices is an architecture style that became popular in 2015 as means to break software solutions into a set of independently deployed services. In this talk we'll cover basic DDD concepts, and we'll discuss why and how DDD can help create microservices with better autonomy, scalability, and reliability. Using examples, we'll navigate from a domain model to the design of both synchronous (REST-based) and asynchronous (reactive) microservices.
