First principles are the origins, main concepts or assumptions that cannot be deduced from anything else. Reasoning from first principles is best described by Elon Musk: "You boil things down to the most fundamental truths and say, 'What are we sure is true?' ... and then reason up from there." This contrasts with reasoning by analogy, "where we are doing this because it’s like something else that was done or it is like what other people are doing."

Reasoning from first principles takes more of mental energy, but it is the key to radical innovations beyond small incremental evolutions, and it offers many other implementation benefits too. It is particularly relevant for domain modelling in DDD, especially on a core domain that we need to understand deeper, breaking free from the legacy thinking.

Join Cyrille Martraire for a whole day where you will learn how to deconstruct domain models until you reach their substantial first principles. As on a real project, we'll start from piles of feature requests, and we'll crunch them through code refactoring and critical analysis until we identify the domain insights that will lead to a smarter modelling in code.
