Course FAQ

What is Domain-Driven Design?

Domain-Driven Design is more of a philosophy than a technology or a strict methodology. DDD is based on making the project's primary focus the domain of the subject matter, basing the design on a model, and making sure that both technical experts and subject matter experts are working together on the design.

What is the advantage of Domain-Driven Design?

Domain-Driven Design in practice is generally more flexible and easier to update. It also resonates much more with the intended audience of the product because it's built from the ground up specifically for their subject matter.

What are some disadvantages of Domain-Driven Design?

The most common challenge when implementing Domain-Driven Design is finding subject matter experts to collaborate with on a project that is outside of their typical realm. Developers and domain experts need to have enough overlapping knowledge in order to bring a successful product to life.
