In my last post I wrote that I wanted to start writing a API endpoint. But that was a bit premature, at the time.
I first had to investigate about stuff like Domain Driven Design, Test Driven Design and Clean Architecture. To put it mildly my knowledge of these architectures and best practices is a bit rusty.
Over the last period I watched a couple of YouTube clips and read various articles about those subjects. Turns out it is quite a journey to learn these topics, and not necessarily that useful for this project. Domain Driven Design is recommended for complex systems, but I don’t consider the website I am going to build complex. I definitely need to learn more about these things, but I’m not gonna combine that with this project. I don’t want to dive too deep. The basics of a Web API and an Angular frontend will keep me busy for the coming period.
