From Domain to Code with Domain Storytelling

We all love programming. But programming is not an end in itself. And how do we actually know, what we should program? For that we need a tool to learn about the domain.

Domain Storytelling is a collaborative modeling method. It brings together domain experts and development teams. It means that we let our users tell us stories about their work. While listening, we record the stories using a pictographic language.

The experts can see immediately if we understand their story. After very few stories, we understand the language of our users and can build a domain model from it and implement this in the programming language of our choice.
