Domain Driven Design Resources to Enjoy while in Lockdown
As many of us hunker down in our homes during the COVID-19 crisis, we are all looking for things to do. I’ve been having a go at making a sourdough starter and reading books that have been sitting on my bookshelf for more years than I dare to admit.
I have been putting together a collection of resources that I’ve been given or have found over the years. So, if you’re at home and you’re at a loss for something to learn (or you’re still waiting on that Sourdough to be ready), here is a selection of useful links, books and resources that will help you on your way to learning more about DDD.
- DDD Europe YouTube Channel - a selection of quality talks from previous DDD Europe Conferences.
- Domain-Driven Design: Hidden Lessons from the Big Blue Book - entertaining and insightful talk from Nick Tune.
- Virtual DDD Archive on YouTube - recordings of previous Virtual DDD meetups.
- KanDDDinsky YouTube Channel - talks from the KanDDDinsky DDD conference.

Heads Up: These resources cost money.
