The Soft Skills of Architecture Part 1

A session at ArchConf

Tuesday 5th April, 2016

8:30am to 10:00am (PST)

Being a software architect is a tough job. Not only do you have to have significant technical depth and breadth, but you also need to understand the business domain you are working in. While these aspects are important, there is another perhaps more vital aspect of being an architect - the soft skills. Too many architects fail to realize the importance of soft skills, and as a result do not achieve success in their career as an architect. In this two-part session I will focus on the soft skills of architecture. In part one I will cover skills related to architecture decisions, architecture refactoring, and whether architecture certification is worth while.
