Modular Architectures: What they are and why does it matter now

We have been creating modular architectures for a very long time. What’s different is its scope and importance today.

In this session, we will go over what essentially is a modular architecture and how is it different from other styles of architectures.

We will walk through some of the contexts that will either help you or hinder you while refactoring existing application to be modular.

We will look at some of the techniques and patterns that can be applied to arrive at a modular architecture.

Finally, we will revisit why it is important today, more than ever to be create truly modular architectures and how does it prepares us to handle forthcoming paradigms.

    Presentation was too dry, no diagrams, no hierarchy or concrete modular design. Now everybody can be modular as long as they use jars.

      I see you've presented at EclipseCon. Care to share your perspectives on Modular design at CJUG? [masked]

    Thanks everyone for attending. I am sure most of you would have been just relieved to survive through my rant. If you need a release, I suggest you use the feedback form to do so.

    Here's the form -

      I was suppose to receive that PowerPoint from that day's presentation but did not get it. It was also to have been sent to me by Freddy Guime. Please see to it that I get the PowerPoint presentation since I was told I could have it. Thank you

    Hi, I suggest weekend meetings...some of us work during the week in the suburb

    • Bob P.

      Not sure we've ever considered weekend meetings. Anyone else share this view?

      March 16, 2014

    • Mira K.

      Yes, I do. I also work in the suburbs and coming to the city in the evening is not too convenient (although not impossible).
