Developer Badass-as-a-Service

Exposing the not-so-secret practices of the cult of DDD
Liljeholmssalen, Thursday 15:15 - 16:05

For decades, the followers of the Legend of the Ubiquitous Language, have been successfully implementing software solutions in complex domains. Using the not-so-secret practices outlined by the cult of DDD, they merge the realms of development and business to create understandable and manageable software.

But even if these powerful practices aren't secret, they are shrouded in mystery and complex language. Making them tools used almost exclusively by developers who have studied the ancient book of Evans. A book filled with incantations like "bounded context", "value object" and "anti-corruption layer".

But that ends today! In this session, we will expose some of the most useful DDD practices for what they are. And we will also show you how they can become powerful tools in your developer toolbelt. Even if you do not want to bend your knee to the craftspeople of old, and spend the rest of your career trying to explain the legend of the ubiquitous language to everyone around you.

Chris Klug is a developer badass-as-a-service that either creates or solves problems depending on who you ask. He loves creating and building things. Whether it be a new application, a new kitchen or a new RC helicopter, you will see him building things all the time. Most of the time, that means writing code and solving problems for clients at a company called Active Solution in Stockholm though. Except for the many days he spends at conferences and usergroups, talking about doing things he is passionate about, and for the days he goes mountain biking, IPSC shooting, kiteboarding or RC helicopter flying. For the last 15-something years, he has been solving problems for customers, and loving it. But if he gets to choose, he'll go to the beach and kitesurf every day!
