From strategies to essential technologies—build a solid foundation in software architecture

Fast-paced and practical, the O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference provides the training that veteran and aspiring software architects, engineers, and senior developers need to stay current with emerging technologies, hone their leadership skills, and support the success of their businesses.

Featured Speakers

Engineering the Future of Software Architecture

To become a software architect, you need to build considerable skills, knowledge, and judgment. And the learning doesn't stop once you have the title. For both aspiring software architects and veterans, the new O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference offers up to four intense days of learning and networking. We'll cover:

  • The most important elements of architectural judgment—strategies, principles, heuristics, techniques, and more.
  • Architectural thinking—learn from recent case studies, and see side-by-side comparisons of frameworks, microframeworks, and other technologies.
  • The soft skills essential to this role: leadership, collaboration, and interacting with all levels of your organization (which often means speaking the language that other departments speak).

If you're a software architect, aspiring software architect, software engineer, or developer, the O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference will give you a solid foundation in the skills you need to succeed.

Important Dates:

  • Training Courses: Monday & Tuesday, March 16-17
  • Workshops: Tuesday, March 17
  • Keynotes and Sessions: Wednesday & Thursday, March 18-19
  • Exhibit Hall: Wednesday & Thursday, March 18-19
