SDD 2017 Schedule
Tuesday 16 May 2017
The software industry is in a deep crisis. Projects suffer from low quality; schedule slips and cost overrun are common. But this is hardly ordained, since there are plenty of examples of projects done on schedule, on budget, on quality in a repeatable manner.
The key for solving the crisis is to practice software development as an engineering discipline, just like it is done in mechanical or electrical engineering. That is exactly the responsibility of the modern software architect, which must address software systems from an engineering standpoint, applying age-old engineering practices to software development.
Armed with that crucial observation Juval will share his perspective on what is the key set of skills required of the architect, the role architects have to plan in order for the project to succeed, what it implies both to companies and to individual architects, and how should architects navigate and manage their own career path and personal growth.
Juval is the founder of IDesign and a master software architect specializing in system and project design. He has mentored hundreds of architects across the globe, sharing his insights, techniques, and breakthroughs, in architecture, project design, development process, and technology. Juval is Microsoft’s Regional Director for the Silicon Valley and had participated in the Microsoft internal strategic design reviews for C#, WCF and related technologies. He is a frequent speaker at international software development conferences, and he has written a number of books, the latest of which is the forthcoming 4th edition of Programming WCF Services (O'Reilly 2015). http://www.idesign.net
