[DDDDD-20] Context Maps – practically applied


Context Maps try to illustrate the contact between bounded contexts on a formal level in a holistic view. In addition to the usual supply and service relationships, organizational aspects and team dynamics are also very important. The hands-on starts with a short introduction to the Context Map's Patterns as well as the meaning of team relationships. After that we will work on a sophisticated case-study in order to apply the theory in practice. The workshop consists of 15% theory and 85% hands-on practice. During the practical part we will weigh in on a lot of pros & cons for certain patterns and I will showcase a lot of tradeoff discussions that will occur when working with Context Maps.

A rough knowledge of DDD and bounded contexts would be desirable.
