Modelling the Domain Model with the Users' Mental Model in Mind
Having a usability background, I see a lot of similarities between UX methods focusing on the user´s mental model and Domain Driven Design.

In this talk I will share my experiences from a 3 years project where we successfully used DDD to break up a big giant monolith application into a modularize solution. I will use real examples to illustrate both the easy and the hard part of modelling our domain model, with special emphasis on the aggregates

I will also share my reflections of whether our modelling challenges can partly be explained by focusing on the user¨s mental model, and how this can shed light on why defining the domain model sometimes is a struggle.
