9. MVP and Architecture Agile is all about emergent design Architecture gives the code a place to grow Designing architecture only for MVP is short-sighted Architecture from tests only .. is horse shit! - Uncle Bob Martin

20. How can we be better? 4. Domain Modeling

21. Domain Dictionary Aim for common language in team Reduce misunderstandings Don't conquer all with single dictionary Create with stakeholders Aliases that combine multiple terms/concepts

22. What the system.. IS vs DOES Data vs Algorithm Plan for change Traits?

23. Languages, paradigms and patterns Modeling variance Language features > libraries > design patterns

24. Role of DSL's Modern languages support DSL creation DSL often end up restrictive or fragile "Nothing says screw you like a DSL" - Stuart Halloway

27. Basics Who's the reader? Code as forward thinking documentation Document relationships that are not visible from code

28. Must-have documents External integrations diagram Created with PlantUML

29. Must-have documents Internal component diagram Created with PlantUML

30. Must-have documents Domain Model as Code

31. Must-have documents Internal component diagram External integration diagram Domain model as code Domain dictionary Decision log

32. Summary Design enough, early enough Architecture is a team responsibility "See for yourself!" is essential in good design Document things that are not visible from code
