101 things software development didn't learn in architecture school

A session at Lean Agile Scotland 2015

Friday 9th October, 2015

12:10pm to 12:40pm (GMT)

Almost everyone in software development appears to have their own opinion of architecture. Mine has been evolving slowly over the years and I'm increasingly convinced that we have outlived the building architecture analogy and something constructively new is required. Software Architects aren’t yet an endangered species but perhaps they should. However, before we leave the land of architecture behind altogether there is still an astonishing wealth of ideas in the filed of the physical architecture that we would benefit from adopting beyond just the facade. In this talk I will share some specific ideas of concepts taught in architecture school and practiced in the design studios around the world that could be adopted into our thinking about systems, design and solutions.

Development teams catalyst turning work into joy.

Software engineer obsessively drawing diagrams (some may even call that architecture). Development teams catalyst turning work into joy. Addicted to learning and experimentation, seeking forgiveness not permission.
