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.

Part 2: Real -World Domain-Driven Design with Golang

In the second part of this book, we are going to learn how to apply DDD in a more real world setting and we are going to write a lot of Go code.

We will firstly look how we could apply DDD to both an existing and a new monolithic application. We will then move on to explore how we could build a microservice from scratch using DDD, whilst still ensuring we follow good resilience practices.

Finally, we will investigate how DDD can play a part in ensuring a large distributed system is organized and easy to reason about.

As a bonus, you can also enjoy a chapter on how we might use test-driven development and behavior-driven development alongside DDD.

This part comprises of the following chapters:

  • Chapter 5, Applying DDD to a Monolithic Application
  • Chapter 6, Building a Microservice Using DDD
  • Chapter 7, DDD for Distributed Systems
  • Chapter 8, TDD, BDD, and DDD
