Another DDD eXchange has come and gone at Skills Matter, and our warm thanks go to the godfather of DDD, Eric Evans, for his help in putting together a fantastic event and sponsorship from Domain Language.
If you weren’t there, do you know what you missed? Let me tell you! Of course, you missed Eric Evans — our host, compere, and keynote speaker, you missed Greg Young, you missed Dan Haywood, and you missed Alberto Brandolini. You missed the excitement of two park bench panel discussions, hosted by Zi Makki. You missed Cyrille Martraire, you missed Paul Rayner, and did I mention Eric Evans?
We are also very excited to announce Skills Matter will continue our partnerhsip with Eric Evans for the fifth annual DDD eXchange! Coming June 14, 2013 — the first 50 tickets are on sale now for just £50.
Our summer of Architecture continues — check out the free events at Skills Matter from our DDD experts, including Eric Evans, Udi Dahan, Greg Young, Andreas Ohlund, Simon Brown and Alberto Brandolini. Read about it here, or check out our full programme of DDD & Architecture events here
Udi Dahan — the Software Simplist — has been a regular at Skills Matter for many years, and frequently a familiar face at the DDD eXchange.
Udi is recognised in the community as a leading expert in the areas of Service-Oriented Architecture and Domain-Driven Design. What’s more, Udi is also the co-creator of the Command/Query Responsibility Segregation pattern, and the founder of NServiceBus. Is there anything he can’t do?
Udi returns to Skills Matter as part of our Summer of Architecture, and will be delivering his Advanced Distributed Systems Design with SOA between July 2nd and 6th. While new technologies make it easier to comply with today’s communications and security standards, they won’t magically provide you with a robust and scalable system.
If you enjoy deep architectural discussion, if you are in charge of building a large-scale distributed system, and if you want to know more about how the big guys run their systems, sign up now for Udi Dahan’s Advanced Distributed Systems Design with SOA workshop!
Despite the recent monsoonal turn in the weather here in London, at Skills Matter we’ve still got our hawaiian shirts and bermuda shorts out for the Summer of Architecture. You’ve heard about the courses, you know all about the DDD eXchange — but did you know we have a host of free In the Brain talks from our world class experts? Including a talk from the Godather of DDD himself: Eric Evans!
July 5Brian Sletten: RDFa Today Join Brian for this remote session as he sets the stage, catches you up on what has been happening in the past year and explains why you need to be paying attention.
July 5 Eric Evans: Case Study Involving Strategic Design And Established Formalisms Join the Godfather of DDD as he elaborates on his talk given to this year’s DDD eXchange: a case study involving strategic design and established formalisms. Described by#dddx attendees as a “Cool example of an out of the box approach to the problem”, “Vaguely earth-shattering” and generally great, this is not to be missed!
The Skills Matter DDD eXchange 2012 is just a week away — and we’re excited to be able to announce two new presenters for this star-studded conference. While we are sad to report that Hans Dockter will no longer be presenting at the DDD eXchange, the great news is that we now have Cyrille Martraire and Alberto Brandolini lending their skills and their brains.
Cyrille will report on how DDD has been applied to capture deep models of the domain, within bounded contexts that emerged in the course of the project, and how DDD also helped to build a strategy for dealing with the legacy code. Read more here
Alberto has been helping different development teams exploring complicated domains to implement sophisticated application. But the more he explores very different domains, the more he has realised there’s more underlying commonalities that he hadn’t previously realised. Read more here

The sun is out and here at Skills Matter HQ we’re watching out eagerly for the ice cream man — but even more exciting than an ice cream with a flake in it is the big names in Domain Driven Design, CQRS and Software Architecture that we have coming to join us over the coming weeks and months.
We’ve lined up a steady flow of architecture rock stars for the summer, including headliners Udi Dahan, Greg Young and Eric Evans, supported by experts Simon Brown, Andreas Ohlund and Alberto Brandolini to provide an exciting range of talks, discussions and practical workshops on all things architecture.
The only thing we’re missing is you — we’d love to see you soon!
