This one-day tutorial is an interactive introduction to
software architecture and what it means to be a software
architect. It's aimed at software developers who are looking towards their
first software architect role, developers who want to become more
architecturally aware and software architects that are new to the
role. We'll be asking and answering the following questions:
1. What is software architecture?
2. What is the role of a software architect?
3. How do you define software architecture?
4. How do you share software architecture?
5. How do you deliver software architecture?
This session is about broadening your software
development skills and has been designed to take full advantage of the
technical knowledge that you already have; whether that's Java, .NET or
something else. Join us to become more "architecturally
aware" and build better software.
Target audience: Software developers who are looking towards their first software architect role, developers who want to become more architecturally aware and software architects that are new to the role.

Simon Brown, Founder of "Coding the Architecture"
Depending on your viewpoint, Simon is either a software architect who codes or a software developer who understands architecture. When he's not developing software with .NET or Java, Simon can usually be found consulting, coaching or training. Simon has also written books about Java, presented at industry events and has put together a training course called Software architecture for developers, which is based upon his software architecture writing at Coding the Architecture
