"We value working software over comprehensive documentation" is what the manifesto for agile software development says, with the typical misinterpretation of these few words being "don't write documentation". Of course, that's not what the manifesto says and "no documentation" certainly wasn't the intent. It seems that many software teams have lost the ability to communicate what it is they are building and it's no surprise that these same teams often seem to lack technical leadership, direction and consistency. Join us for a journey, as we navigate through maps, travel guides and source code to visualise, document and explore our software.

Speaker: Simon Brown

Simon is an independent consultant specialising in software architecture, and the author of “Software Architecture for Developers” (a developer-friendly guide to software architecture, technical leadership and the balance with agility). He is also the creator of the C4 software architecture model, which is a simple approach to creating maps of your code. Simon is a regular speaker at international software development conferences and travels the world to help organisations visualise and document their software architecture.
