2 Days: Architecture with Agility

Kevlin Henney, Curbralan


Every system has an architecture, whether accidental or intentional, and regardless of whether it was put in place by a nominated architect or whether it emerged from the decisions and discussions of a team. All too often the focus of what is often described as architecture is centred around a specific set of platform technologies, which forms only one part of the set of concerns an architecture should. And all too often architecture is seen as a separate concern from development process, whereas the two are intertwined, what you build is influenced by how you build it, and vice versa.

The Architecture with Agility course looks at the relationship between agile and lean processes and good architecture, taking in development process models, architectural styles, requirements techniques, development techniques and the question of legacy.
