Implementing Domain-Driven Design

This book is not an introduction to the DDD world, but a very detailed (close to 600 pages) technical approach about what it takes to successfully implement DDD in a company. I recommend this book to every software architect and software developer concerned with the architecture and long term evolution of the applications that they develop.

Read the complete review of Implementing Domain-Driven Design

*** Quote of the Month ***

The first thing to realize when formulating your first DoD (Definition of Done) is that it isnít cast in stone. You donít need to spend an eternity deliberating what it should be, because it can evolve over time
