Just a short post to provide a rundown of the events that we'll be speaking at over the next couple of weeks.
|Kevin and I are presenting a one-day tutorial at QCon London 2010 called Software Architecture for Developers, which covers the majority of the content from our two-day training course without the practical case-study exercises. Following this, Kevin is presenting a session for the "Cool Stuff with Java" track about OSGi and industrial-strength Swing.|
|I'm running our two-day training course at Skills Matter in London and, as I mentioned at the start of the year, this has been enhanced to include more content about the actual process of architecture, with a focus on coming up with a high-level software design in a few hours rather than a few weeks. You can preview the slides and there are a few places remaining if you want to come along.|
|I'm running a session at the IASA UK Chapter that will look at where to start with designing a software system from a blank sheet of paper. The focus here is on pragmatic software design without the need for lots of process or expensive modelling tools.|
|Finally, I'm running two sessions at DevWeek 2010; one called "Improving quality with an automated build process" (it has a .NET focus) and one called "A developer’s guide to load testing" that covers the basics for evaluating architectures where performance and/or scalability is important.|
It's going to be a busy couple of weeks, but I'm planning on spending some time in the audience at both QCon and DevWeek. If you want to meet or catch-up, feel free to send me an e-mail or a message via Twitter.
Simon is an independent consultant specializing in software architecture, and the author of Software Architecture for Developers (a developer-friendly guide to software architecture, technical leadership and the balance with agility). He’s also the creator of the C4 software architecture model and the founder of Structurizr, which is a collection of open source and commercial tooling to help software teams visualise, document and explore their software architecture.
