On February 11 I will give a talk at a DigiComp event on Steering agile architecture.
This is a free event organized as a preamble to a series of courses on Steering agile architecture organized throughout the German-speaking side of Switzerland in partnership with DigiComp starting with March.
In February, I will have the pleasure of giving two sessions at OOP 2016:
During December 7-10, I will be at ArchConf where I will have the pleasure of giving four 90-minute sessions on:
On December 2, I will give a keynote at the Software Evolution @ Lille event. This is a research-oriented event bringing together three different workshops around the topic of software evolution.
This keynote will be an evolved version of the one I previously held at ECOOP 2014 and will be placed within the context of software evolution research.
Software evolution was laid out as a field several decades ago. I still remember that in my very first workshop I got to meet Meir Lehman, the parent of this field who together with László Bélády coined the now famous laws of software evolution. While I think great things came from this field, I believe we now need a different perspective. In a way, the field of software evolution tends to take a stand similar to ecology: it studies the phenomenon without influencing it much, or not at all. However, the rate and the way in which software gets developed, requires us to take a stand and actively influence the actual course of our future. Hence, the need for software environmentalism.
On November 25 I will have the pleasure of giving a session from my Steering agile architecture series at the Agile Breakfast Bern. We’ll be talking about how to test architecture and how to get a team of people produce a cohesive result.
