 Feature Presentation     
  Domain Driven DesignDomain-Driven Design
Domain-Driven Design Demonstration in .NET
Dave Rael, Educator and Software Solutions Provider

Domain-Driven Design can be understood
without being intimidating or difficult to grasp!

     Dave will lead you through Domain-Driven Design at its core, showing you the value it provides in uniting teams beyond just the technical members, but also making products and business concepts accessible to everyone involved via the development of a ubiquitous language.
     Heavy on demonstration, you will see how you can specify the behavior of a sample domain via Behavior-Driven Development/Design and model it via Domain-Driven Design. The example will include partitioning of the system into Bounded Contexts and a demonstration of Entities, Value Objects, and Aggregates according to Domain-Driven Design with a full-stack implementation of a small slice of the application functionality.

PeerSource, 303.867.1111
       PeerSource is a Denver, CO. based Technology & Healthcare IT recruiting firm serving Colorado, NYC and the U.S. We provide staff augmentation on a contract basis as well as contract-to-hire and “direct hire” recruiting for our clients. In addition, through our sister company, we offer payroll (think about when you have a candidate to fill a need, but don’t have the FTE approval) and comprehensive HR services to clients that are second to none. With over 1,300 people on our large group health insurance plan, we offer our W2 employees fantastic benefits including health & dental, matching retirement and education reimbursements!
     PeerSource is unique and goes the extra mile. We understand that clients and candidates are busy and don’t want to waste their time with interviews where there isn’t a good technical fit. With that in mind, we’ve created the PeerNetwork Subject Matter Expert Group. This is a well-qualified network of technology professionals chosen to conduct technical interviews of our candidates prior to their submittal to clients. Once we’ve identified the top candidates from a soft skills perspective, we reach out to our SME Group and leverage their expertise to provide clients & candidates the technical fit they need to be successful! The result is greater efficiency, lower costs and less wasted time as we provide the best possible fit and great opportunities for our talent.
     Speaking of talent, we value people! Our affiliated businesses have over 5,000 worksite employees throughout the US allowing us the ability to offer fantastic health, dental, retirement and education benefits to our team.
     Our services include:
          Permanent/Direct-Hire Placements
          Right-to-Hire or Hourly Consultants (W2 & Corp-to-Corp)
          Payroll Services for our clients
     We're always looking for great people with a passion for excellence!
