In this session, we’ll take a look at some of the ways we can determine whether the development efforts we’re undertaking suffer from too much or too little focus on architecture. We’ll examine a number of real-world examples that are intended to inspire either admiration or terror, and try to find some recipes of how we can get more of the former and less of the latter in our own projects.
What will the audience learn from this talk? How to find the right balance between agile/ iterative/ incremental development, diving right into coding, up-front planning, and continuous architecture [...]
