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. The O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference focuses on technical breadth as well as depth. 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 2016, our theme is evolution, and for the San Francisco edition we'll focus on domain-centric and product architectures. We'll explore hypothesis-driven development, microservices, reactive architectures, continuous delivery and how the the role of architect has broadened in recent years, encompassing disciplines like DevOps and security. It's the 25th anniversary of the Agile Manifesto: What has become part of the architectural canon and what still needs to be built? Architecture and the architect's role continue to evolve, and we'll document that journey.

Software Architecture Training Courses

Immerse yourself in two days of in-depth education on critical topics. Each training takes place Sunday, November 13 through Monday, November 14 and is limited in size attendees to maintain a high level of learning and instructor interaction.
