InfoQ Presentation: Eric Evans on DDD - Strategic Design
Some design decisions have an impact on the trajectory of the whole project. Modeling is most needed in complex circumstances, yet the typical dynamics of large projects too often derail it or disconnect it from the real design. Conversely, modeling is best carried out by small, dynamic teams with a lot of autonomy, yet creating large systems requires coordination and project-spanning decisions. Managers and developers alike need to pay close attention to this intersection of design, project organization, and politics.
In this talk, Eric Evans introduces two broad principles for strategic design.
- Context mapping addresses the fact that different groups model differently.
- Core domain distills a shared vision of the system’s “core domain” and provides a systematic guide to when “good enough” is good enough versus when to push for excellence.

Video not working.
Re: Video not working.
This might be due to the internet connection, as now the video is working fine on both IE and Firefox.
San Fran presentation
Will the video for this version be posted? Eric added some stuff that was very appropriate for where I work - want to show it to some coworkers.
I like the way Eric is speaking about DDD but still would like to get more hands on examples...
Re: San Fran presentation
Some people should be strapped into a chair and forced to watch this Clockwork Orange style ;-)
Please put some effort into this. These problems really are unnaceptable in an IT site in 2007.
