Hexagonal Architecture Ports&Adapters with J. Martinsson & R. Sanlaville

Feb 10, 2015 by Madalina Botez in  Announcements

Until recently, layered architecture was the most common way of organizing large applications or modules. We’ve learned from practice that it has limitations:

  • business rules tend to escape or be duplicated in UI and/or data layer
  • switching from a database to another is very difficult
  • adding another UI to the application (eg. mobile or smart client) requires heavy changes
  • changing a library used by the application with another is often complex and risky

A new architecture style has appeared in the recent years that tackles this problem: Hexagonal Architecture, or Ports & Adapters. Its intent is to allow more flexibility by cleanly separating business rules from everything else.

Johann Martinsson and Rémy Sanlaville have described the basics of Hexagonal Architecture and then shown an example of such an architecture.

Crafted Design with Sandro Mancuso

Feb 19, 2015

Sandro Mancuso, the initiator of the London Software Craftsmanship Community, wondered how to structure the code so that it reveals not only the architecture but also its features. In this talk, he shows how to better organize namespaces and domain entities, something he called Interaction Driven Design.
