- Greg Young on more conceptual tests
- Udi Dahan on decomposing a system with bounded contexts
- Matthew Wall followed up on the DDD project at the Guardian UK Online
- Eric Evans on ways to shift toward DDD when you have a lot of legacy.

There was wide participation in the Park Bench. The discussion was nicely facilitated by Zi Makki for the third year in a row. This has become almost a tradition of the event, he does such a fine job.
