Talk

DAY 2 | 14:15-14:45
english

Software architecture sounds like a topic only geeks would be interested in. In this talk, we’ll take a look at what software architecture actually is, why you can’t avoid dealing with it even when you’re a non-technical decision-maker, and how it needs to be addressed throughout the lifecycle of any digital product or service. Laugh or cry when Stefan presents some of the worst failures that he has seen (and sometimes caused) in his career so far. Find new hope when he presents some concrete advice on avoiding a similar fate to your projects.
