Workshop: Zen of Architecture
Date:Thu, 29 Jun
Learn the only way to design a software system.
Identify what the classic mistake is that many make and how to avoid it.
Discuss the methodology for streamlining architecture.
An open mind; It will be different from what anyone has ever showed you.
For the beginner architect, there are many options for doing pretty much anything. But for the Master architect, there are only a few.
In this dense workshop, Juval Lowy will explain his approach to large system analysis and design, using volatility to decompose a system into its comprising services. Juval will contrast it with the most common mistake done in architecture, using functionality to identify services. These are universal design principles, and Juval will use examples from software and non-software systems alike. You will also see how to overcome the real hurdles architects face pursuing volatility-based decomposing, simple and practical techniques for identifying areas of volatility, common telltale signs or "smells" when your design is still functional when using the Method, IDesign's approach for system architecture. You will learn how to mechanize software system design, how to do it quickly and effectively. Juval will also discuss logical tiers, security, interoperability, scalability, transactions, and other aspects of a modern application.
The workshop concludes with a discussion of how modern architecture fits into development processes such as Agile, common pitfalls of design in an Agile environment, and how to design the development process for maximum productivity.
