Bio

Anita is a UX passionate software developer. She has more than 20 years of experience with creating complex business critical applications, mainly for Equinor ASA, a huge Norwegian energy company.

Anita has experience from all parts of the software design process, lately focusing more and more on software architecture and hands on coding. She enjoys spending her workdays using her knowledge of the users and their domain and applying this insight toward the utilization of Domain Driven Design principles in the process of implementing new software solutions.


Modelling the Domain Model with the Users' Mental Model in Mind (Talk)

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.


An Experience Report - Using DDD in a Real Life Project (DDD Foundations)

In this talk I will show you that DDD isn't just theory, but that it is actually very valuable in real life. I will do this by sharing my experiences from a about a 3 years project where we exploited DDD to replace a part of a big monolithic business application in Equinor. I will tell about how we worked in our team during the project, what we achieved, and how DDD played an important role in these achievements.
