Our next XpMan is on software architecture with Chris Carroll & Mark van Harmelen

Part I: What is (the point of) software architecture?

A brief flight through software architecture for agile teams. We’ll slow down for the bits that you don’t always learn (or I least I didn’t, YMMV) as a developer, most notably:
  • defining, calculating and generally getting a tangible grip on software qualities / NFRs like reliability, resilience, availability, performance, testability, maintainability, security, usability, efficiency and other such not-always-well-defined things.
  • a brief history and what’s trendy or useful in architectural views & viewpoints
  • Calculating, estimating, validating, quantifying, risk-assessing and generally putting numbers on everything.

Part: II Discussion

When do you pay attention to architecture and get the drawing board out? For what scale of system? Using what notation? What happens to your architectural descriptions over time?

Common Bar from 5pm
