Don't Walk Away From Complexity, Run - Dr. Venkat Subramaniam

We constantly hear that change should be affordable and cost effective. True, but, in reality, that is easily said than done. Complexity makes change hard. We can't shy away from the hard problems posed by domains and business needs. So, how can we solve complicated problems without getting dragged into the quagmire of what appears to be an inevitable complexity? In this keynote, an award winning author and software practitioner will share experiences and observations from working on multiple software projects, about what leads to complexities, the traps developers and organizations fall into, and what we can do to effectively deal with these common, recurring issues we see across domains and products.

Schedule
- 6:30 PM: Food & drink (including alcohol) provided and conversation
- 7:00 PM: Announcements
- 7:05 PM: Main Session

Information about DDD Denver

This is a group for those interested in learning about and adopting DDD, and includes a number of experienced domain-driven design (DDD) practitioners. Our goal is to encourage building a DDD culture in the mile-high region, within is organizations and their teams, and helping you follow through with successful implementations. Our name says Denver, but we have members attending from along the front range, including Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs. 

Our group includes those who have practiced the tenets of DDD for decades and who have adopted the more formal patterns and practices established by Eric Evans in his book, Domain-Driven Design--Tackling Complexity in the heart of software. Some of our practitioners regularly teach DDD immersion, present at conferences, mentor and consult, and write on the subject. 

Join us for discussions on topics such as realizing business value from DDD, how to build a DDD culture, overcoming barriers to good design, and successfully implementing DDD. 

Meets on the second Monday of each month.
