Design loosely-coupled, domain-aligned sociotechnical systems with the Bounded Context Canvas.

Workshop Summary

One of the biggest challenges of DDD and architecture in general is breaking a large system down into loosely-coupled sub-systems. Using the Bounded Context Canvas you will learn how to decompose large problem domains into cohesive, autonomous, domain-aligned bounded contexts which become the blueprint for your software architecture and your organisation structure.

Workshop Description

Working in the setting of a complex domain, you will learn the essential theory of Strategic DDD and Bounded Contexts, and then put it into practice by modelling the domain as a series of loosely-coupled, highly-cohesive bounded contexts aligned with natural contours in the business domain.

As you model the large domain, you will learn how to make business model-guided modelling choices by identifying the highest value parts of a system - the core domains - as well as generic and supporting capabilities.

You will work iteratively, refining your designs to accommodate key technical details like NFRs and legacy constraints. Finally, you’ll learn how to shape the organisation that will build and deliver the bounded contexts, rounding out your sociotechnical design skills.

On your journey, you will be guided by the Bounded Context Canvas, providing you with a structured process for exploring and identifying bounded contexts and teaching you the essential questions to ask in order to find a good design, and challenge it to find even better ones.
