Over the past decades, the software development industry has carved out a massive core body of knowledge of software architecture and design patterns. And yet, fundamentally, our industry is not better off because of it, as it falls behind trying to cope quickly with ever changing requirements and increased complexity, coupled with dwindling budgets and past mistakes. A dissonance exists between the ivory tower theoretical world of best practices and the grim reality in the trenches. In this visionary session, Juval Lowy will articulate the root causes of the problem, propose contemporary solution comprising of tools, process and a new methodology for system design, literally a missing piece in the puzzle. Finally, Juval will predicate the impact and infliction adopting his approach will have on the livelihood and prosperity of every software architect and developer.
