Rant to discuss Domain Driven Design (DDD) architecture.

Did anyone implemented on production?
How scalable and easy to use?
Do you recommend it? if yes in which environment? in which business types?

    So it seems many devs here are interested to read and get notified on this subject but no one has already used or experience in it.
    Well very interesting

    Tripple D's?
    Ok no, let's be serious this time.

    πŸ€” I can't say I've had a need to even think of considering DDD as a valid option.

    Obligatory 🚩for someone who works in stupidly complex projects.

    I'm doing some DDD / Onion Architecture electric boogaloo right now. My grasp on DDD isn't that great but I've been involved in building a system using that approach once and I think it's really cool. Not sure what the alternatives are tho, except for the ol' "let's wing it and start building something and hope it comes out right".

    Having different representations of the same concept based on context is sweet. Shave off all that bloat and cognitive load. A car means one thing for the person assembling it and another thing for the person selling it; some properties are obviously shared but others are relevant only in one specific context.

    I also like establishing a shared vocabulary so that business and tech can communicate clearly, that "Ubiquitous Language" thing. Feels like it leads to a system that closely resembles the actual problem domain.

    I'm not used to talking in these terms so I'm having a hard time coming up with more than "DDD good"... So far, I see a lot of promise when dealing with any non-trivial problem/domain. In my current project I try to apply the concept where I can see a clear benefit and just keep it simple so that I don't over-engineer the thing...

    I think DDD works super nicely in 3D games.

    The company I work for is heading towards domain driven design, from what I've found so far the major benefit is the separation of business logic to be able to unit test properly. If you have an application like an accountancy system or something similar, it works great. I can't say much about other software areas though

    @Darkovernerd but how easy to use ? What's the difference you found so far ? Why it's currently trending ?

    @Mba3gar it all depends on your implementation to be honest. I would recommend reading up on the solid principles and specifically the inversion of control principle and liskov substitution principle.

    My guess as to why it's trending is due to the current push in tdd
