Domain-Driven Design in PHP
Domain-Driven Design in PHP
Discover DDD, Architectural Styles, Tactical Design Implementations, and Bounded Context Integration with PHP 7.4 examples
About the Book
In 2014, after two years of reading about and working with Domain-Driven Design, Carlos and Christian, friends and workmates, traveled to Berlin to participate in Vaughn Vernon's Implementing Domain-Driven Design Workshop. The training was fantastic, and all the concepts that were swirling around in their minds prior to the trip suddenly became very real. However, they were almost no PHP developers in a room full of Java and .NET developers.
Around the same time, Keyvan co-founded Funddy, a crowdfunding platform for the masses built on top of the concepts and building blocks of Domain-Driven Design. Domain-Driven Design proved itself effective in the exploratory process and modeling of building an early-stage startup like Funddy. It also helped handle the complexity of the company, with its constantly changing environment and requirements. And after connecting with Carlos and Christian and discussing the book, Keyvan proudly signed on as the third writer.
Domain-Driven Design has arrived to the PHP community with lots of talk but no real code detailing how to implement Tactical DDD patterns or how to integrate Bounded Contexts with REST and/or messaging strategies. Without being in a Training session and no PHP real examples, learning DDD can be challenging.
Together, we've written the book we wanted to have when we started with Domain-Driven Design. It's full of examples, production-ready code, shortcuts, and our recommendations based on our experiences of what worked and what didn't for our respective teams. We arrived at Domain-Driven Design via its building blocks — Tactical Patterns — which is why this book is mainly about them. Reading it will help you learn them, write them, and implement them. You'll also discover how to integrate Bounded Contexts using synchronous and asynchronous approaches, which will open your world to strategic design — though the latter is a road you'll have to discover on your own.
Addicted to software development, who loves to share the knowledge he learns with others. Enjoys exploring many areas of the field, ranging from algorithms to software architectural design. Co-hosts a weekly development podcast found at ThreeDevsandAMaybe.com. Has worked in an agency setting, freelance and now at MyBuilder.

Cloud StrategyGregor Hohpe
“Strategy is the difference between making a wish and making it come true.” A successful migration to the cloud can transform your organization, but it shouldn’t be driven by wishes. This book tells you how to develop a sound strategy guided by frameworks and decision models without being overly abstract nor getting lost in product details.
R Programming for Data ScienceRoger D. Peng
This book brings the fundamentals of R programming to you, using the same material developed as part of the industry-leading Johns Hopkins Data Science Specialization. The skills taught in this book will lay the foundation for you to begin your journey learning data science. Printed copies of this book are available through Lulu.
C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
The book is almost daily updated. These incremental updates ease my interaction with the proofreaders.
