London User Group - April 2008

Sharing Architectures

Here are the details of the April London User Group.

  • Title : Sharing Architectures
  • Summary : The transition from architectural vision to production code is not always an easy one. Of course we plan for a certain amount of change and accept that some decisions will, on occasion, be wrong. However, without effective communication of the architecture and timely feedback mechanisms, can we really expect to see software that we recognise?

    Whether we're up to our elbows in an agile team or riding a barrel down a waterfall project, our choice of what we define and how we convey it can have an enormous bearing on how the architecture is reflected in the software. This session takes a look at some techniques for sharing the architecture and not just publishing it.
  • Speakers : Kevin Seal
  • Date : Tuesday, 8th April 2008
  • 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).
  • Cost : Free, but registration is required.

Skills Matter
Many thanks to Skills Matter for sponsoring the user group.

Just a quick comment for anyone that is unable to attend the session : we will again be recording the session along with the subsequent discussion and releasing it as a podcast. Hopefully the quality will be a little better this month as we have some new toys to help with the recording!
