Eric Evans talks with Dave Rael about useful models, science as a way of life and source of modeling examples, relative benefits and costs of choices, and using design to deliver

Eric Evans is the author of “Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software,” Addison-Wesley 2004. Since the early 1990s, he has worked on many projects developing large business systems with objects with many different approaches and many different outcomes. The book is a synthesis of that experience. It presents a system of modeling and design techniques that successful teams have used to align complex software systems with business needs and to keep projects agile as systems grow large. Eric now leads “Domain Language”, a consulting group which coaches and trains teams applying domain-driven design, helping them to make their development work more productive and more valuable to their business.

Eric's book recommendation:
Eric's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Make a plan that will enable you to deliver soon and make sure the first thing you deliver actually matters
  2. Don't allow a mentality of design efforts with upfront cost that will intimately yield value - good design yields value immediately
  3. Produce many models and let competition determine the most useful one
