Domain Storytelling (www.domainstorytelling.org) is a collaborative modeling method. It brings together domain experts and development teams and helps them to understand the domain of a software system, find context boundaries, and to talk about requirements.

Domain Storytelling means that we let domain experts tell us stories about their tasks. While listening, we record the stories using a pictographic language. The domain experts can see immediately whether we understand their story correctly. After very few stories, we are able to talk about the people, tasks, tools, work items, and events in that domain.

In this workshop, we will explore how Domain Storytelling can help you with different aspects of DDD:

  • crunch domain knowledge
  • constitute ubiquitous language
  • segregate bounded contexts
  • tactical modeling

Goals

You will learn how to adapt the method to the various purposes and you will try out different tools. After the workshop, you will be able to apply Domain Storytelling on your own.
