Vaughn and Carola discuss human cognition and how our minds deal with complexity through recognizing shapes, organizing into hierarchies, and categorizing by types. This introduces what sustainable architecture is and why we naturally benefit from this brain-friendly way of designing software. Domain-Driven Design is a thread woven throughout their conversation, which ties together Carola’s first book on sustainable architecture and her new book. It’s title is “Domain-Driven Transformation,” which she has coauthored with colleague Henning Schwentner. It’s been newly accepted by Pearson Addison-Wesley to be published as part of Vaughn’s signature series.
