To really understand what our users will need, and build the right thing, we want to have a first-hand experience from ‘real-life stories’ before we can model and create our software. To quote Alberto Brandolini: "It is not the domain expert’s knowledge that goes into production, it is the developer’s assumption of that knowledge that goes into production".
EventStorming is a technique that minimizes assumptions by doing deliberate, collaborative learning with different disciplines in order to solve business problems in the most effective way.
EventStorming can be used in a variety of contexts - from deliberate discovery to team flow and from sprint retrospectives to detangling systems and from domain-driven design to designing CQRS/event sourcing systems and determining candidate microservices. As long as there is a story to tell and a timeline involved, EventStorming will be a useful tool. In this dynamic, two-day training course, you’ll learn how to facilitate an EventStorming workshop for your professional journey.
