The Architect

The software industry is in a deep crisis. Projects suffer from low quality; schedule slips and cost overrun are common. But this is hardly ordained, since there are plenty of examples of projects done on schedule, on budget, on quality in a repeatable manner. The key for solving the crisis is to practice software development as an engineering discipline, just like it is done in mechanical or electrical engineering. That is exactly the responsibility of the modern software architect, which must address software systems from an engineering standpoint, applying age-old engineering practices to software development. Armed with that crucial observation Juval will share his perspective on what is the key set of skills required of the architect, the role architects have to plan in order for the project to succeed, what it implies both to companies and to individual architects, and how should architects navigate and manage their own career path and personal growth.

    What a fantastic talk! The comparisons and critique of the software industry as compared to other disciplines and industry was fascinating and thought provoking. Also, Juval is hilarious to boot. Well worth catching him if you can. That week long intensive course sounds amazing.
