Domain-Driven Design: Hidden Lessons from the Big Blue Book

We are entering an incredible new era of digital product development where users expect a seamless experience across all of their touchable, wearable, and voice-activated devices. How can we learn to develop software effectively in this new digital-by-default world?

Let’s go on an adventure and see if the big blue big and can help us in this brave new world.
