Tailor Made Software Architecture with Michael Carducci


Architecture is often described as "the stuff that's hard to change" or "the important stuff (whatever that is)." At its core, architecture defines the very essence of software, transcending mere features and functions to encompass vital capabilities such as scalability, evolvability, elasticity, and reliability. But here's the real question: where do these critical capabilities truly originate?
In this session, we'll embark on a journey to uncover the secrets behind successful architectures. While popular architecture patterns may offer a starting point, it's time to unveil the startling truth – both monolith and microservices-based projects continue to stumble and falter at alarming rates. The key to unparalleled success lies in the art of fine-tuning and tailor-making architectures to precisely fit the unique needs of your organization, environment, and the teams delivering the software.
Step into the future as we introduce a groundbreaking, problem-centric approach to defining and evolving system architectures. Our practical techniques will empower you to transform constraints, both architectural and environmental, into powerful enablers of robust, valuable, and long-lived software systems. Join us and elevate your architecture game to new heights!
