About the talks and the speakers
Architecting Independent Value Streams
Software architecture helps businesses to achieve competitive advantage in many ways, like reducing costs and improving time-to-market. But to extract architecture's full potential, the software, business domain, and organization need to be aligned as independent value streams. This talk is about the principles, heuristics, and practical techniques that engineers, architects, and leaders can apply to architect their systems as independent value streams.
Nick Tune is a consultant who helps companies to modernize their architecture, organization, and ways of working. He is the author of Architecture: Product, Domain, and Team-Oriented (Manning), and Patterns, Principles, and Practices of Domain-Driven Design (Wrox).
The Art of Architecting for Scale
Every day, companies struggle to bring great software products to their customers with sufficient speed and efficiency. Especially with an organization's increasing size and complexity, this becomes a significant challenge, and the pace occasionally feels like going against zero. But more than ever, it is precisely this skill of scaling software development efficiently that differentiates thriving companies from less successful ones.
In this talk, I will share some insights on architecting successfully for both: organizational and technical scales. We dive into the balancing act between reuse and autonomy, the tradeoff between simplicity and technical excellence, and the key concepts that allow us to create the architectural foundation that stands the test of constant change. We will further explore why highly available, elastic, and resilient service-based architectures are non-negotiable in delivering customer value at a permanent high pace. But you will also grasp why it rarely seems to work out in our industry.
These differentiators in architecting for scale will become evident after a closer look at the reoccurring challenges and (anti-)patterns we've experienced in real-world projects. Unfortunately, no silver bullet will enable your organization to deliver outstanding software efficiently at scale. Still, this presentation will give you the needed knowledge to start moving in the right direction.
David Leitner is Coding Architect at SQUER, a Viennese Software Company, which is working with different stacks and environments, but always on an overarching mission: connect ideas and provide impact — with technology. He spends much of his time on the frontlines tackling the challenges of scaling software and complex domains, with a strong focus on reactive systems, cloud-native architectures, and state of the art web technologies.
This time, the location, food, and drinks are sponsored by TechTalk. Thank you very much, TechTalk, you rock! 🎉
