At this time, two workshops are available. Other topics are available upon request.

Tactical DDD and Doctrine

You’ve looked at Doctrine. Maybe even shipped a few applications with it. But you don’t want to just work with it, you want to thrive with it. In this workshop, we’re going to move from creating CRUD models to crafting model layers. We’ll discuss breaking down your business into a domain model and learn how to capture it in code.

Our emphasis will be practical, pragmatic techniques for bringing the business knowledge into the code using tools you already know. The result will be more maintainable, easier to test and simpler to understand. Even better, it’ll actually do what your clients wanted. Along the way, we’ll dive into Doctrine ORM, how it can help us, how it can hinder us, and the features you never knew it had.

I’ll sit down with team members and stakeholders to analyze your apps and identify major problems in technique and process. Then, we’ll craft a custom version of a workshop to address these needs and find solutions together.
