I’ll be speaking at Philly ALT.NET on Domain Driven Design

Next Thursday evening (2/4/2010) from 6:00pm-9:00pm I’ll be speaking at the Philadelphia Alt.NET user group on real-world Domain Driven Design implementation patterns in .NET.

The full title of the session is going to be “Lessons from the Trenches: Pragmatic Implementation Patterns for DDD in .NET” and the overview synopsis will be:

In this session, we’ll take a look at common implementation patterns for Domain Driven Design concepts in .NET.  Focusing less on Powerpoint and more on code samples and discussion, we’ll dig into exploring implementation patterns for Entities, Value Objects, Services, Factories, Repositories, and other DDD constructs as well as patterns for wiring them up to collaborate between each other in a larger application.  We’ll also discuss people’s real-world implementation experiences and investigate common pain-points in applying DDD to the software development process.

For details and to RSVP if you want to attend, visit this link.  I’m looking forward to a thorough interactive discussion session where we can dig into attendees’ real-world experiences with DDD and get at the heart of what it means to use a DDD approach to engineering your software solutions!

To my knowledge these meetings aren’t recorded but I hope to see everyone there (if you’re in the area and can make it!)
