Domain-Driven Design with Golang

Overview of this book

Domain-driven design (DDD) is one of the most sought-after skills in the industry. This book provides you with step-by-step explanations of essential concepts and practical examples that will see you introducing DDD in your Go projects in no time. Domain-Driven Design with Golang starts by helping you gain a basic understanding of DDD, and then covers all the important patterns, such as bounded context, ubiquitous language, and aggregates. The latter half of the book deals with the real-world implementation of DDD patterns and teaches you how to build two systems while applying DDD principles, which will be a valuable addition to your portfolio. Finally, you’ll find out how to build a microservice, along with learning how DDD-based microservices can be part of a greater distributed system. Although the focus of this book is Golang, by the end of this book you’ll be able to confidently use DDD patterns outside of Go and apply them to other languages and even distributed systems.

Understanding Domains, Ubiquitous Language, and Bounded Contexts

In this chapter, we will introduce some of the core concepts of domain-driven design (DDD). For those who have never worked with DDD before, it should cover enough of the details so that you understand the fundamental concepts. For those with more experience, it should serve as a refresher. I hope that after you have completed this book, you will also be able to use this chapter as a reference when applying DDD in the real world.

I have used real-life scenarios wherever possible to make things as clear as possible. This starts with the Setting the scene section, so be sure to read that even if you’re skimming!

By the end of the chapter, you should be able to answer the following questions:

  • What is a domain?
  • What is a sub-domain?
  • What does ubiquitous language mean?
  • What is a bounded context?
