Alberto Brandolini: The Gordian Knot at muCon London 2019, Skills Matter

Check out “EventStorming Remote Modelling” online workshop with Alberto Brandolini (9-10-11 September 2020)!

Once upon a time there were two of the most successful conferences organised by Skills Matter. They were called DDD eXchange and muCon.
These two events have now merged into a bigger and better one: muCon – The Conference on Microservices, DDD & Software Architecture, a 3-day conference which aims at serving both the Domain-Driven Design and Microservices communities.
Both communities are alive and well all over the world, as the very varied and international crowd at the BDC in London could testify! 🙂

(Now available as a public workshop: get your tickets for the second edition of Training from the BACK of the Room, with Teri Frith, Bologna, 8-9 June 2020).

Chasing Elephants by Alberto Brandolini at Codemotion

Closing Keynote by Alberto Brandolini

Developers suffer from dangerous addictions.
They draw pleasure in making things work. When this doesn’t happen this could lead to dramatic consequences.

Developers deprived of the possibility of making things work could start exposing dangerous behaviors like challenging authority and mainstream thinking.
In extreme cases, they may even fall into the abyss of asking the forbidden question: Why?

Introducing EventStorming

In the past months I’ve spent some time experimenting with this weird thing. It started like a “Ouch I have no time to draw a precise UML diagram, let’s do this instead” then became a thing called Event-Based modelling workshop that I presented at Italian Agile Day 2012, I later had the chance to do more experiments in Belgium and Poland during Vaughn Vernon’s IDDD tour, and I gathered incredibly valuable feedbacks and insights. I managed to find a cooler name – EventStorming – just before the whole thing exploded in summer 2013. While I realised there was a lot of value in it, other practitioners (Mathias Verraes, Tom Janssen, Marco Heimeshoff, Yves Reynhout, Tomas Jaskula, Alessandro Colla, Andrea Balducci, Jef Claes, just to name a few) started exploring and playing with the format with amazing results, leading me to the conclusion that this is something more than “just another workshop format”.
