An unfinished review about the book "Patterns, Principles, and Practices of Domain-Driven Design" by Scott Millett

To put my current status in one sentence would end in something like "Still not finished but already learned and achieved so much".
This entry is about the book named "Patterns, Principles, and Practices of Domain-Driven Design" by Scott Millett.

First of all, thank you Scott Millett.

I started reading this book at the end of 2015 and I am right now on chapter eleven. It is not because of the complexity of this book. It is because of the essential knowledge shared in each sentence (ok, maybe only each paragraph ;-)).
My approach right now is to read a page and practice it right away, either in the company at all, in the team or in the code.
Since Domain Driven Design is quite close to normal behavior and life, I always run into open arms when explaining somebody an idea, either a part of the qa, the developers or the business stuff.
It is also cool that Scott Millett tells you more than once, Domain Driven Design is not the silver bullet.

As written above, I am far away from having finished this book, but even now (ore even few chapters before) I would have signed the sentence "totally worth the money".

Last but not least, thank you Scott Millett.

Some thoughts about the book Antifragile Software

There is a good book called Antifragile Software at Unfortunately, you can not comment directly but need to have accounts for "services" I will never use because they are evil.
Thats why I will give my two cents here instead of there.

I've just startet reading it (currently 25 percent) at it is indeed a good one.

I like the way Russ Miles forming words into sentences, especially since he concentrated on the fact to keep topics short but understandable.

I'm looking forward to get an update soon. Anyway, thanks so far for the first 25 percent, they had sharpened some corners in my mind already.

Pro OpenSolaris

Another month, another book, but still an apress one ;-).

This time, my eyes were focused on the operation system side. It is sad but after reading this book, i can still feel and see the echo of the wounded heart that oracle made by stopping the open solaris development in 2010.
This os reads and feals really well structured and "like a fresh breeze".

But back to the book. If have already index the book with my sticky markers and from now on i have quick access to the following content.

  • CLI
  • SMF
  • ZFS
  • Zones
  • AMP
  • SVN
  • DTrace
  • Links

The book contains 240 pages, so can not bring you in that deep. But it at least it tries, or tries to show you the great world of this operation system.
While playing around in a VM, it still feals that fresh and easy way. The os is well structured and by scratching at the top, all works well. And of course, just for DTrace, SMF and ZFS ... you should give open solaris a try.

The book itselfs is short and well written and shows you the represents you the main benefits of this os.
Because of the fact that open solaris is currently not in well progress, the price is more than cheap. And if not using open solaris, it is good to read about the concepts and the way the os is structured.
