Agile has long shunned up-front design. When Agilists force themselves to do up-front work, it usually is limited to a symbolic use of User Stories for requirements and metaphor for architecture, with much of the rest left to refactoring.

This course shows how to use domain analysis in a Lean way to build an architecture of form that avoids the mass of structure that usually accompanies big up-front design, using only judicious documentation.

It will also show how architecture can accommodate incremental addition of features using Trygve Reenskaug’s new DCI (Data, Context and Interaction) approach, and how it maps elegantly onto C++ implementations.

The course is based on the new Wiley book of the same title (
