Agile Alliance 2018 Conference: Agile Architecture: Mindset, Skills and Practices
Agile2018 is an unparalleled opportunity to share your knowledge, expertise and experience on a truly international stage. Last year we were joined by nearly 2200 executives, managers, software developers and researchers from over 40 countries who gathered to hear from recognized experts, authors, innovators and practitioners who offer their unique insights.
The annual Agile Alliance North American conference is dedicated to furthering Agile principles and providing a venue for people and ideas to flourish. This is where the Agile tribes meet.
Agile Architecture: Mindset, Skills and Practices
There are many questions surrounding agile and architecture: How do agile teams address architecture? If the best architectures evolve over time, should you do any architecture modelling up front or just dive right in? How do you effectively evolve your architecture? Who is responsible for architecture on an agile team? How do we address common architecture issues across agile teams?
Luckily everyone one of these questions, and more, have been answered by other teams just like yours. There are many ways to answer each of these questions - there isn't a single "best practice" but instead several good options that you can choose from.
We will work together to explore the mindset, skills, and practices required to successfully evolve architecture on agile teams. Techniques such as initial architecture envisioning, architecture risk canvases, spikes, walking skeletons, model storming, agile guidance, and others will be shared. Collaboration strategies, including potential roles such as Architecture Owner, Enterprise Architect, and Reuse Engineer will also be overviewed.
