Global CTO - Software Architecture at Pivotal

Event Storming is a low-tech and powerful technique for creating models of business processes that translate directly into the realm of Domain-Driven Design. All you need is a combination of domain experts and engineers, a large wall to act as a modeling surface, several colors of sticky notes, and markers.

Event Storming is much better caught rather than taught, so in this session, we’ll have the opportunity to work together to understand and model an exemplary problem domain in small groups. You’ll need to bring a laptop to this session and create a free Realtime Board account to use as a virtual modeling surface that you can take away from the session.
