  • Design and Security in Agile: QCon London Q&A

    Reviews of design diagrams by domain experts can detect potential security breaches not found by vulnerability scans or security automation. Such reviews should focus on critical functions like issuing and managing access tokens, transferring data to external services, and running untrusted code, said Kevin Gilpin, enterprise software engineer and co-founder of AppLand, at QCon London 2019.

  • Are Frameworks Good or Bad, or Both?

    Preferring frameworks or libraries is somewhat controversial, Frans van Buul, Evangelist at AxonIQ, the company behind Axon Framework, writes in a recent blog post. Many argue in the favour of libraries but Van Buul thinks that a framework can be very valuable when building business applications. He believes this to be especially true for applications based on CQRS, DDD and event sourcing.

  • Bruck: Quick Interface Layout Prototyping

    Bruck is a new lo-fi prototyping system targeted at web designers that enables them to quickly build responsive, accessible layout prototypes for clients. Designers may prototype a large variety of layouts by composing up to 25 web components. Designers may additionally visualize in real time the composed layout in Bruck's online interactive playground.

  • O’Reilly Publishes “The State of Microservices Maturity” Report

    Microservices are evolving from fad to trend, according to “The State of Microservices Maturity” survey, published by O’Reilly. The report showed an overall positive attitude towards microservices among practitioners surveyed. One significant finding is that DevOps and microservices feed off each other, so that the success of one contributes heavily to the success of the other.

  • The Pure Attribute in .NET Core

    The Pure attribute was added to .NET in version 4 as part of the Code Contracts initiative to help developers distinguish between code that free from side effects from other code. While the Code Contracts project is over, the Pure attribute continues to see life in .NET Core.

  • An Incremental Architecture Approach to Building Systems

    Of most of the applications we have globally, maybe 90% of them are perfectly served by a monolithic approach. To avoid overengineering, we should start with a simple architecture and evolve it as needs arise, Randy Shoup recently declared in a presentation where he described his experience with companies that started small and then grew into large global internet companies.

  • Netflix Play API: Building an Evolutionary Architecture

    At QCon SF, Suudhan Rangarajan presented “Netflix Play API: Why We Built an Evolutionary Architecture”. Key takeaways included: services that have a single identity/responsibility are easier to upgrade; spend time identifying core decisions that need to be made when building a service; and designing an “evolutionary architecture” using tools like fitness functions provides many benefits.

  • InfoQ's New Desktop Design Launched

    We've made a number of changes to InfoQ's desktop site, the third major overhaul of our design since we got started in 2006. You can switch to the new design now to try it out.

  • Readable Code - Why, How and When You Should Write It

    Most people would say they want readable code, and may even prefer readability over functionality. But when it comes down to asking people to define readability, opinions will start to diverge. At Explore DDD 2018 , Laura Savino covered why we want readable code, what it really means to be readable, and when readability absolutely must take priority over other considerations.

  • Lessons from the UK Government's Digital Transformation Journey

    Citizens can get the information and services they need more quickly because users' needs are considered in government service design, and suppliers can work with the government in modern agile ways: these are two benefits resulting from the UK Government's digital transformation. Having teams exposed directly to users motivates teams to make their products better.

  • Basic Concepts and the Future of Axon, a CQRS and Event Sourcing Framework

    At the recent Event-Driven Microservices Conference in Amsterdam, Allard Buijze described in a presentation the basic concepts, the history and future of Axon, a framework for systems based on DDD, event sourcing and CQRS. The adoption of Axon Framework is growing rapidly and recently hit one million downloads.

  • Michael Feathers Wants Error Elimination to Be a Design Driver

    Michael Feathers finds errors fascinating, but acknowledges that most developers don't spend a lot of time focusing on them. He also thinks most error handling is kind of giving up. Although best known for his books about working with legacy code, Feathers used his keynote presentation at Explore DDD 2018 to discuss how eliminating errors can be a design driver for software systems.

  • Eric Evans Says Domain-Driven Design (DDD) Isn't Done

    During his keynote at Explore DDD, Eric Evans said "DDD isn't done." Over the past fifteen years since Domain-Driven Design was published, DDD hasn't stood still, and there is still much to do to keep DDD evolving.

  • Business Processes, Long-Running Services and Microservices

    During recent years domain events are increasingly being discussed, but we should be discussing commands just as much, Martin Schimak explained at the recent DDD eXchange 2018 conference, where he covered events, command and long-running services in a microservices world, and how process managers and similar tooling can help in running core business logic.
