Patterns of Incremental Architecture

Speaker: Shawn Button, Chris Gow

Track: Technical

Duration: 60 min

Level: Intermediate


In Agile you should start with the simplest thing that will give you value, and iteratively build on top of that. But how does that work with a Legacy Enterprise Application that everyone is terrified to touch? Or what if we need to build an application that handles millions of transactions a day? How can we make sure that our architecture will meet our needs two years from now, when we don’t know what the application will look like? And how does the process of architecture work in an Agile environment?

Join Chris and Shawn in this interactive session, as they explore these topics. Learn architectural patterns that allow you to evolve your architecture. Examine techniques to help you work with legacy apps and dependencies. Learn how good architecture allows us to manage technical risk. See how business and technical people can work together to build an incremental plan for your product.
