The call for speakers is open for Software Architecture in New York

Most software development conferences focus on increasing your skills by providing in-depth technical sessions in a single track for architects. The O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference focuses on technical breadth as well as depth--the entire conference delves into the varied facets of the role of software architect. Understanding the tradeoffs, technology options, and engineering practices is critical because the long-term success of many companies balances on the effectiveness and versatility of the software architecture teams that design, implement, and deploy it.

We're interested in hypothesis-driven development, microservices, reactive and evolutionary architectures, emerging fintech like Blockchain, and architectures that support continuous delivery. We also cover the soft skills of architecture: how to document and present architectural visions, meeting hacks, and other non-technical but essential skills. We're seeking sessions that explore how the the role of architect has broadened in recent years, encompassing disciplines like DevOps and security. Architecture and the architect's role continue to evolve, and we want your help documenting that journey.

Tell us about the tools you use and why, and the effect they've had on your work. What are your strategies for meeting your company's business goals, developing leadership skills, and making the conceptual jump from software developer to architect? Don't worry if you don't yet have a lot of speaking experience. We're looking for speakers to share new techniques and approaches, proven best practices, and exceptional technical skills with the engineers, developers, tech leads, and managers who bridge business and technology.

See our call for speakers or more details on the topics we're interested in and tips for creating a great proposal.
