We met Konstantin twice in the past 2 years when he visited CJUG while on business from his home city of Minsk, Belarus. He will again be traveling to Chicago to visit a customer of EPAM Systems this summer, and we wasted no time to book him for a presentation for us.


Architecture is not only about technology, it is mainly about solving business problems using technology. I see architecture as the process of identifying business goals, gathering requirements, managing stakeholders, making design decisions, documenting and communicating. If you want to become an architect you need to understand all that and use it in practice. I will show how to do this effectively and possible way for you to grow as an architect.
