*Software Architecture for a Digital Age
Software architecture emerged in the 1990s, and has been evolving ever since, from a directive, up-front activity, where a single architect created the architecture, which was then implemented by others, to today's team based adaptive architectural approaches where architecture is a shared activity owned by the entire team. In this talk we'll explore the architectural practices that deliver architecture as a "shared commons" which supports the Agile+DevOps ways-of-working needed for success in the digital age.
