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.

Should my company adopt microservices?

As with all technology initiatives, microservices come with trade-offs. What might be a great fit for one company might be a terrible fit for yours. Be sure to have a wide discussion with your team and be honest about the challenges ahead. Some questions you might want to answer:

  • Do we have the expertise to run a distributed system? If not, what is our strategy to hire that expertise or train our staff?
  • Do we have the necessary tooling in place to monitor a distributed system? If not, will we get the budget and time to put these in place?
  • Which platform will we use to manage our distributed system? Kubernetes? Something else?
  • How comfortable is our team with the said platform?
  • How comfortable are our teams with building and owning their own CI/CD pipelines?

All these questions are basically lower-level questions that roll up to the ultimate question: will leadership invest the money and give us the time to do this...
