Essential Complexity: Developing and maintaining complex software
Some apps are little more than CRUD. The interesting projects are those with essential complexity in the domain. In this presentation we'll show how ideas from Domain Driven Design, Domain Specific Modeling and Domain Specific Languages can be used to more effectively design, refine and maintain the code at the heart of complex applications.
As the complexity of your applications grow, how can you find, protect, refine and maintain the core of your application so that you can keep the code supple despite an ongoing onslaught of custom business requirements? From DDD to DSLs this session looks at practical strategies for keeping complex applications under control.
