Our first Java User Group Thüringen Meetup in Ilmenau took place on 18th October 2017 in the Softwarepark near the Technical University. We had around 20 guests interested in the topic, a lot of them for the first time.

The event location

We started with a short welcome and our JUG introduction presented by Benjamin Nothdurft and Carsten Zeitz.

Introduction by Benjamin

Our speaker for the evening was Christoph Baudson from REWE Digital. He is the founder of the new Domain Driven Design Köln/Bonn Meetup and organizer of the Bonn Agile Meetup.

In the next part the focus was on the most important concepts of DDD:
Domain, Domain Model, Bounded Context and Ubiquitous Language.
Based on a practical example Christoph explained these concepts and the relation between them.

Examples of DDD concepts

Finally he demonstrated how REWE Digital has build its organization and architecture based on the DDD and Conway’s law. Additionally we learned techniques like Event Sourcing and CQRS (Command Query Responsibility Segregation) which match perfectly to DDD.


Event storming

Event storming in progress

After this, small groups tried to consolidate the events and to find headlines for describing these parts of the organization process. Despite the small amount of time we could figure out some clusters of events. Christoph finished the workshop with a short summary and described how the results can be used for further refinement.

Thanks to Christoph Baudson for the interesting talk, the practical insights and sharing the slides.
