Reactive DDD: Modeling Uncertainty

Domain-Driven Design supports reactive architecture and programming. Still, reactive introduces uncertainty.

Speed Matters

More than 20 years ago my team and I were working with my client on a web application. It was still 1999, so the dot-com bubble had not yet burst, but it would begin to weaken only five months or so into Y2K. And to think that everyone was concerned about worldwide computer failures at

Problems and Solutions

We are solving a set of big problems in the software industry. Obsolete and brittle architecture, and deficient software design, have resulted in the competitive paralysis of the software industry. It is quite common for large enterprises, that once enjoyed competitive distinction, to be hamstrung by Big Ball of Mud systems that prevent more than
