This is a list of documents, videos, and other resources to support learning about and use of DCI. Many of the resources are on this site; many can be found elsewhere on the web.

  1. Trygve Reenskaug. "Working with objects. A three-model architecture for the analysis of information systems", October 1995. The presentation discusses advanced role modeling. It would be fun to implement this example with its databases and end user tools using DCI. The old example illustrates the merging of object oriented technology with the well established data base technology in a third generation client server architecture. The architecture is based on three kinds of models: information models, organization model, and tool model. 1995.

  30. Coplien, James. Restoring Function and Form to Patterns: DCI as Agile's Expression of Architecture. Software Architect 2010, London, October 2010. This talk uses Alexandrian patterns as a metaphor to discuss the issue of form in design, and to illustrate that DCI is indeed an architectural paradigm — that concerns itself with the form of function. In the end, it shows that patterns actually have the same grounding.
