Here are the details of the December Coding the Architecture London User Group.
- Title : From Developer to Architect
- Summary : The transition from software developer to software architect is often shrouded in mystique and few people talk about it. But what does it really mean to be an architect and how does it differ from being a developer? Join us for this session where a number of hands-on software architects share their experiences of when they took on their first architecture role. This is your opportunity to find out exactly what "being an architect" is all about.
- Date : Thursday, 6th December 2007
- Time : 18:30-20:00
- Location : Skills Matter, 1 Sekforde Street
- Format : Presentation followed by a breakout for discussion, with further discussion in a local pub (The Crown).
