Understanding the DDD Whirlpool Process for Effective Domain Modeling

In the world of software development, aligning the software solution with the real-world problem it aims to solve is crucial for success. One powerful approach to achieving this alignment is Domain-Driven Design (DDD). At the heart of DDD lies the DDD Whirlpool process, a collaborative and iterative approach that enables teams to model the core domain effectively.

The goal of the whirlpool process is to describe a way on how to iterate on the design of your domain model. The gist of this approach is to keep challenging the model. 

Start by harvesting a few reference scenarios(through Event Storming or any other technique you like). Use these scenarios to create multiple possible models and quickly iterate over them. Once you end up with a workable model, you can start prototyping your model in code.

Introduce another scenario into the mix and see how it impacts your current model.

Keep repeating this process during the full development lifecycle.

Help! I accidently enabled HSTS–on localhost

I ran into an issue after accidently enabling HSTS for a website on localhost. This was not an issue for the original website that was running in IIS and had a certificate configured. But when I tried to run an Angular app a little bit later on http://localhost:4200 the browser redirected me immediately to https://localhost . Whoops! That was not what I wanted in this case. To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
