Essential Architectural Thinking Workshop
The agile hype is over and regarding architectural work, we find ourselves left in perfect confusion without clear direction. Yet, we have been told that architecture is about those decisions that really hurt, if you get them wrong. But how can we minimize the risk of getting hurt? In this workshop, we will first discuss the challenges of architectural work in a post-agile IT world. Then, after rediscovering why we need architectural work at all, we will set up a surprisingly simple down-to-earth approach for implementing it and we will fill in the building blocks one by one. Finally, we will complete the picture by discussing questions like: When should we do what? How much should we do in which context? How can we create a sustainable architecture and where are the limits? All this will happen in a mix of presentation and group exercises, including room for questions, discussion, tips, tricks and more. After this workshop, we will not have created a silver bullet. But you will have a better understanding what architectural work actually is about, what is important, what is not, and how to tackle it in practice.
