Our next meetup
An Introduction to Lean and Functional Domain Modelling
Speaker: Marcello Duarte
Rich domain models, inspired by imperative objective-oriented approaches, dominate our industry. But lean domain models are a compelling alternative.
By separating behaviour and state, lean models offer an effective way to represent units of behaviour. This session will explore how to represent a lean domain model using a functional programming paradigm.
We'll explore how types can be used as a natural way to represent business constraints alongside smart constructors and functional validation. How behaviour can be better composed, and how to keep domain behaviour isolated from application state.
About the speaker:Marcello is one of the creators of PhpSpec and author of Phunkie. He heads the Training at Inviqa, a leading PHP consultancy business in Europe. He’s been awarded best UK Agile coach 2014 and has helped many teams in many organisations into Agile processes and development practices like Scrum, TDD, Refactoring, Collaborative Product Ownership and Software Quality.
