Deeper Understanding with
Domain Driven Design (DDD)

We're excited to welcome a real tech-ie to our Cocktail!
Nicole Rauch is a friend and neighbour of Deb's, co-founder of the german-speaking Software Craftsmanship community, Softwerkskammer and the German SoCraTes unconference.

Nicole's focus is currently on Specification by Example and Domain-Driven Design, though she has a background in compiler construction and formal methods, and a secret love for functional programming.

She'll share her experiences with us about bringing the larger product community together - business and tech - for deeper shared understanding using Domain Driven Design and EventStorming. Afterwards, as usual, we'll all join the discussion with some Lean Coffee™ Talk—or perhaps our new Virtual Fishbowl!  

Between now and the day of our call, consider:

What do you wish the business understood about software development? And vice-versa?

About this Community

Spend 100 minutes with us, to share your experiences, insights and questions with your change-agent peers around the world - people who share your concerns and courageously speak to important issues.

We'll start with a 15-minute talk or activity by one of our Agile colleagues, then move into discussion of your own topics - be they puzzles, success stories, or questions - and work our way through them until we run out of time! It's a great way to build strong professional connections around the globe.

Your CoachingCocktails hosts are: Deborah Preuss, CPCC and Steve Holyer, Agile Coach


About Coaching Cocktails

Coaching Cocktails are intimate online meetups that encourage community among change-agents, focused on the important work of making our workplaces more meaningful and joyful.

Our formats are powered by "whoever comes is the right people." In our Cocktails calls we start with a short talk or activity followed by relaxed discussion of participants' own related themes in a LeanCoffee™-inspired format. Our longer Workshops and MasterMind groups use the same "back of the room" style of facilitation to connect people and ideas, developing new skills and creating new relationships and possibilities.

Deborah Hartmann Preuss, Steve Holyer and John McFadyen have been holding space for this relaxed gathering of peers since 2013, drawing energized colleagues from New Zealand to New Mexico.
