Domain-driven design: Some descriptions

Some descriptions about the interesting topic of Domain-driven design:

Wikipedia: Domain-driven design (DDD) is the concept that the structure and language of software code (class names, class methods, class variables) should match the business domain. For example, if a software processes loan applications, it might have classes such as LoanApplication and Customer, and methods such as AcceptOffer and Withdraw.

DomainDrivenDesign by Martin Fowler: Domain-Driven Design is an approach to software development that centers the development on programming a domain model that has a rich understanding of the processes and rules of a domain. The name comes from a 2003 book by Eric Evans that describes the approach through a catalog of patterns. Since then a community of practitioners have further developed the ideas, spawning various other books and training courses. The approach is particularly suited to complex domains, where a lot of often-messy logic needs to be organized.

Airbrake: Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software, domain-driven design is the expansion upon and application of the domainconcept, as it applies to the development of software. It aims to ease the creation of complex applications by connecting the related pieces of the software into an ever-evolving model.

dddcommunity: Domain-driven design (DDD) is an approach to developing software for complex needs by deeply connecting the implementation to an evolving model of the core business concepts.

thoughtworks: This piece is about making choices for software design. Particularly about larger systems which could potentially be separated into multiple deployables in the form of service endpoints.

DZone: Domain-Driven Design is all about design and creating highly expressive models. DDD also aims to create models that are understandable by everyone involved in the software development, not just software developers.
