What Architecture (The Building Kind) Can Teach Us About Architecture (The Software Kind)

Presented by: Wes Delp
Time: Thursday, Jan. 09, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Architecture has existed for the better part of human history. Over 2000 years ago, the Roman architect Vitruvius claimed that a good building must be durable, functional, and bring delight. Sounds familiar, right? This session will explore how architectural design concepts such as 'less is more', 'form vs. function', and 'adaptive reuse' can be applied to the software patterns and structure in your own applications. You'll discover how the successes (and plenty of failures!) in building design over the years provide timeless lessons for designing and architecting software that will stand the test of time.
