Great for reference,
This review is from: .NET Domain-Driven Design with C#: Problem - Design - Solution (Paperback)
This book was entirely describing the design and implementation of SmartCA application using domain-driven design pattern. The author put every detail of steps in building this application from class design classes, creating solution, configuration, writing unit test... I did not run sample code so I did not know if it actually worked. My focus was the design. The author also provides detail of MVC model for SmartCA application
About the topic, the design was very interesting to me. I used this approach in my past company ( about 10 years ago). However, the design in this book was much cleaner with the favor of .Net 3.5. I like the concept of "the domain model is ignorant of how its data is saved or retrieved from its underlying data store or stores" . The introduction of unitOfWork and Repository objects for each aggregate was good in the design. I think chapter 2 was most important chapter. This described the architecture design of the application, what layer needed, how they interacts with each other. This must be understood completely before moving down to the detail. Once the design pattern was clear, the later chapters provided detail implementations. The structure was similar exception each chapter focus on particular aggregate entity.
I think this book is definitely not for C# beginner. It can be a good reference for higher level.
