The O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference: Engineering the future of software

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 is different, focusing 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.

For 2017, we'll explore hypothesis-driven development, microservices, reactive and evolutionary architectures, emerging fintech like Blockchain, and architectures that support continuous delivery. We'll cover the soft skills of architecture: how to document and present architectural visions, meeting hacks, and other non-technical but essential skills. Because architecture and the architect's role continue to evolve, we'll also feature sessions on how the scope of the architect's work has broadened in recent years, encompassing disciplines like DevOps and security.

Join us at Software Architecture to learn more about the tools to use and why, and the effect they'll have on your work. Hear strategies for meeting your company's business goals, developing leadership skills, and making the conceptual jump from software developer to architect. There's no better place to share new techniques and approaches, proven best practices, and exceptional technical skills with other engineers, developers, tech leads, and managers who bridge business and technology.
