Yes, there is a life beyond DDD. In the best sense of pattern languages, domain-driven design gives clear names to things that many developers and designers know how to do, but cannot reliably and compatibly communicate about. But like other very popular approaches, it is sometimes treated as if it were the only viable design strategy.

In this talk we’ll look at DDD’s contributions as well as some of the misunderstandings and misuses that come with the hype surrounding it. We’ll try to derive some useful guidelines for treating domain-driven design in particular, and software design hypes in general.
