(This is a hands-on lab with limited capacity)

In this hands-on, you will learn how Domain Storytelling helps you to analyze your domain and to support it with domain-driven business software. Domain Storytelling transports the knowledge from the domain experts' heads into the heads of developers, product owners, product managers and business analysts. Domain Storytelling brings these roles together in workshops where they learn and coordinate. Their common understanding of tasks and business processes is documented as a picture with simple pictograms.

The hands-on does not require programming skills. It is suited for people working as software developers, user experience designers, Scrum masters, product owners, product managers, project managers, and business analysts.
