As developers use DDD principles to build larger and richer systems, many of them run into performance and maintainability problems as their domain model grows to meet the demands of the system. Performance problems addressed by eager fetching reappear later in other parts of the system, now requiring the use of lazy loading for the same entities. Join Udi as he shows the use of Bounded Contexts to turn monolithic systems into composite applications, now with multiple lean and mean domain models

Technical debt is the cost of putting off good development practices. This debt, must be paid back to avoid the “interest payments” becoming crippling. This presentation will further define technical debt, before examining some anti-patterns and how to avoid them. We’ll then look at how to put a financial cost on technical debt, and end by examining some measures to identify technical debt in a code base.

Well, you probably don't understand your boss either. You both have different value needs - your jobs and career paths are different, your performance metrics are different, the political games you play are different. What's needed is a value translator. Visual controls like kanban can serve as a visual translator ... while they help you and your team manage your project. Jim Benson will describe how value translators work how to gain an appreciation for other people's value needs, and how to normalize those needs for better team performance and a happier workplace.
