EventStorming is a highly collaborative method for modelling domains and solve real business problems. Software Engineers, Product Owners, Analysts, and Domain Experts, work together to
In this workshop we’ll walk through a business problem to learn the basics of EventStorming.
We’ll start with a Big Picture EventStorming, using domain events to map out the business processes. While working, we’ll gradually add more and more information and go into deeper problems.
Adding commands and rules to the model will guide the learning process and help surface problems with the solution. By this point we’ll be able to explore the full potential of this temporal modelling technique to help us discover deeper insights about the domain, build our shared knowledge and guide us to better solutions for business problems.
In the last part of the workshop the focus will even go into more detail about the model. What can we learn from what we have modelled and how can we actually start using our newly gathered knowledge. How can we link this information to other techniques we know. For example, can we gather user stories, find acceptance tests or discover even more by using different ways of modelling?
At the end you’ll walk away with the knowledge to use this collaborative modelling technique to solve problems, build shared understanding and learn the domain wherever you need it.

I liked the interaction and the in dept theoretical and practical knowledge of the facilitator that demonstrated an eagerness towards the subject. Hands on. On the short term I will start experimenting in our own company. On the long term I expect to practice EventStorming as a routine strategy for DDD development within all of our projects.
I liked the knowledge and experience of the instructor and the collaborative nature of event storming. I expect a high impact in the short term as I will use this method straight away. I am considering event sourcing in some contexts, so hoping that a domain event centric understanding will yield longer term benefits to the persistance store too.
