“[This] is a book about design in the .NET world, driven in an agile manner and infused with the products of the enterprise patterns community. [It] shows you how to begin applying such things as TDD, object relational mapping, and DDD to .NET projects...techniques that many developers think are the key to future software development.... As the technology gets more capable and sophisticated, it becomes more important to understand how to use it well. This book is a valuable step toward advancing that understanding.”
–Martin Fowler, author of Refactoring and Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture
Patterns, Domain-Driven Design (DDD), and Test-Driven Development (TDD) enable architects and developers to create systems that are powerful, robust, and maintainable. Now, there’s a comprehensive, practical guide to leveraging all these techniques primarily in Microsoft .NET environments, but the discussions are just as useful for Java developers.
Drawing on seminal work by Martin Fowler (Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture) and Eric Evans (Domain-Driven Design), Jimmy Nilsson shows how to create real-world architectures for any .NET application. Nilsson illuminates each principle with clear, well-annotated code examples based on C# 1.1 and 2.0. His examples and discussions will be valuable both to C# developers and those working with other .NET languages and any databases–even with other platforms, such as J2EE. Coverage includes
· Quick primers on patterns, TDD, and refactoring
· Using architectural techniques to improve software quality
· Using domain models to support business rules and validation
· Applying enterprise patterns to provide persistence support via NHibernate
· Planning effectively for the presentation layer and UI testing
· Designing for Dependency Injection, Aspect Orientation, and other new paradigms
Jimmy Nilsson owns and runs the Swedish consulting company JNSK AB. He has written numerous technical articles and two books. He has also been training and speaking at conferences, but above everything else, he is a developer with almost 20 years of experience (www.jnsk.se/weblog/).

The book gives a good understanding of applying the ideas from Eric Evan's classic book im a light and sometimes playful way. Recommended.Published 20 months ago by Thomas

Read Riccardo's review, I completely agree with it. I had really high expectations for this book and I have been sorely disappointed. This book is a total waste of money. Read morePublished on December 14, 2008 by W. Halsey

I have come back to this book after first digging into it when it first came out. At that time, I got bogged down and never really made it very far into the book. Read morePublished on September 4, 2008 by David C. Veeneman
I like the author's modesty (very ofter his sentences start with "I think"), his rational thinking and his quoting the relevant big guys. Read morePublished on June 12, 2008 by Ramin
