More DDD

Filed under: Community,Domain Driven Design,Learning,Speaking — Freek Leemhuis @ 4:12 pm

The second part of the DDD workshop contained a modelling session (modelling out loud!), which I think helped a lot explaining some of the concepts.


I’ve attached the slides for the second day below.

Spreading the word

Filed under: Community,Domain Driven Design,Speaking — Freek Leemhuis @ 7:33 am

Eindhoven, 7th of april 2009, Workshop Domain Driven Design.



Smiles all around yesterday as each participant received a copy of the DDD bible. I think a few heads were spinning toward the end of the evening trying to take it all in. It is hard to cram a lot of the ideas in just a few hours, especially if there’s good discussion.

The slide deck can be found here, and the assignment here.

Second part on thursday, see you all there!

Code Fest 01

Filed under: Community,Devnology — Freek Leemhuis @ 4:00 pm

Some night that was! I was well impressed with the people that showed up, discussion and banter flowed between them based on a shared passion for technology and interest in other people’s approaches.


On this first Code Fest (all in Dutch, apologies) we had implementations of that old classic, James Conway’s Game of Life. On the night we had demonstrations of implementations in Flex, Erlang, Haskell, C++, Alloy, Java, CosMos and the Google App Engine. It certainly had my head spinning, and with what I thought was a cracking atmosphere we couldn’t have asked for more. We have invested a lot of time and energy in getting this thing of the ground, but yesterday evening alone was worth every bit of it.

Thanks all for a great evening.

On a sidenote, I was playing with this domain model to describe Devnology, and thought I’d share it here:



Geek as I am, it helps me focus and explain what I think we can achieve : Building a technology agnostic community by organising events that have high interaction between passionate developers. Enable interaction between academia and the software development industrie (software craftsmen, if you like).

With result like yesterday and the software testing event at TU Delft things are shaping up. Come and join us at our next meeting!
