"For software developers of all experience levels looking to improve their results, and design and implement domain-driven enterprise applications consistently with the best current state of professional practice, Implementing Domain-Driven Design will impart a treasure trove of knowledge hard won within the DDD and enterprise application architecture communities over the last couple decades." -Randy Stafford, Architect At-Large, Oracle Coherence Product Development
"This book is a must-read for anybody looking to put DDD into practice."
-Udi Dahan, Founder of NServiceBus
Implementing Domain-Driven Design presents a top-down approach to understanding domain-driven design (DDD) in a way that fluently connects strategic patterns to fundamental tactical programming tools. Vaughn Vernon couples guided approaches to implementation with modern architectures, highlighting the importance and value of focusing on the business domain while balancing technical considerations.
Building on Eric Evans' seminal book, Domain-Driven Design, the author presents practical DDD techniques through examples from familiar domains. Each principle is backed up by realistic Java examples-all applicable to C# developers-and all content is tied together by a single case study: the delivery of a large-scale Scrum-based SaaS system for a multitenant environment.
The author takes you far beyond "DDD-lite" approaches that embrace DDD solely as a technical toolset, and shows you how to fully leverage DDD's "strategic design patterns" using Bounded Context, Context Maps, and the Ubiquitous Language. Using these techniques and examples, you can reduce time to market and improve quality, as you build software that is more flexible, more scalable, and more tightly aligned to business goals.

"With Implementing Domain-Driven Design , Vaughn has made an important contribution not only to the literature of the Domain-Driven Design community, but also to the literature of the broader enterprise application architecture field. In key chapters on Architecture and Repositories, for example, Vaughn shows how DDD fits with the expanding array of architecture styles and persistence technologies for enterprise applications-including SOA and REST, NoSQL and data grids-that has emerged in the decade since Eric Evans' seminal book was first published. And, fittingly, Vaughn illuminates the blocking and tackling of DDD-the implementation of entities, value objects, aggregates, services, events, factories, and repositories-with plentiful examples and valuable insights drawn from decades of practical experience. In a word, I would describe this book as thorough. For software developers of all experience levels looking to improve their results, and design and implement domain-driven enterprise applications consistently with the best current state of professional practice, Implementing Domain-Driven Design will impart a treasure trove of knowledge hard won within the DDD and enterprise application architecture communities over the last couple decades." -Randy Stafford, Architect At-Large, Oracle Coherence Product Development
"Domain-Driven Design is a powerful set of thinking tools that can have a profound impact on how effective a team can be at building software-intensive systems. The thing is that many developers got lost at times when applying these thinking tools and really needed more concrete guidance. In this book, Vaughn provides the missing links between theory and practice. In addition to shedding light on many of the misunderstood elements of DDD, Vaughn also connects new concepts like Command/Query Responsibility Segregation and Event Sourcing that many advanced DDD practitioners have used with great success. This book is a must-read for anybody looking to put DDD into practice."

"For years, developers struggling to practice Domain-Driven Design have been wishing for more practical help in actually implementing DDD. Vaughn did an excellent job in closing the gap between theory and practice with a complete implementation reference. He paints a vivid picture of what it is like to do DDD in a contemporary project, and provides plenty of practical advice on how to approach and solve typical challenges occurring in a project life cycle."

"Implementing Domain-Driven Design does a remarkable thing: it takes a sophisticated and substantial topic area in DDD and presents it clearly, with nuance, fun and finesse. This book is written in an engaging and friendly style, like a trusted advisor giving you expert counsel on how to accomplish what is most important. By the time you finish the book you will be able to begin applying all the important concepts of DDD, and then some. As I read, I found myself highlighting many sections . . . I will be referring back to it, and recommending it, often."

"One important part of the DDD classes I teach is discussing how to put all the ideas and pieces together into
