From developer to architect

As every software developer is now making some architectural decisions, the O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference helps aspiring and veteran architects, engineers, and senior developers build the skills they need by going deeper and broader on a variety of important and timely topics. Due to the ever-evolving and expanding nature of software architecture, this conference is entirely focused on guiding practitioners who design, build, and improve the architectures that are the foundation of all modern software systems.

The call for speakers is open

Not all architectural roles are the result of a deliberate career path. We understand the inadvertent track that many have taken toward this role. And nowhere is this more evident than in Silicon Valley. That's why the O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference is expanding to San Jose in 2019—to assist with the region’s highly unique software architectural needs, and to hear their stories.

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. Tell us about your innovative use of tools and techniques, and the effect that’s had on your work. As software architecture and development continue to evolve, we want your help documenting the journey.

We're interested in technical topics like:

  • Application architecture
  • Event-driven architecture
  • Chaos engineering
  • Domain-driven design
  • Evolutionary architectures
  • Enterprise architecture in the 21st century
  • Microservices architecture
  • How architecture interacts with the rest of the organization, particularly Continuous Delivery, DevOps, and security

See our call for proposals information page for more details on suggested topics, plus tips for crafting a great proposal.
