Expected Duration
63 minutes

There are many benefits to using Domain-driven Design (DDD) and this course will demonstrate the key concepts of the Domain-driven Design model. This course will introduce DDD, help you understand the main principles and components of DDD, why it can be useful, and what knowledge crunching is. Finally, this course will introduce you to the main building blocks of DDD, and a discussion of subdomains and contexts.
