Engineer the future of software

Most software development conferences focus on increasing your skills by providing 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 to the long-term success of many companies, which depend on the effectiveness and versatility of their software architecture teams to design, implement, and deploy their products and services.

Three things that set this conference apart

Depth: Because the whole conference is about software architecture, sessions can go in-depth into complex subject areas. We have traditional 50-minutes sessions, but we also feature 90-minute sessions to allow for deeper dives.

Breadth: The conference covers all aspects of software architecture, including often neglected topics such as how to sell your ideas, manage teams, choose technologies wisely, and a host of other soft skills vital to your success as a software architect.

Networking: Do you lack peers in software architecture? Attendees at this conference love to network. From informal topic tables at lunch to Architectural Katas, a good-natured team competition event, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to bounce ideas off fellow architects or just commiserate.

Topics we'll cover:

Training for the accidental architect too

Whether you have the official title of "software architect" or not, you might be playing the role of architect in your job already: assessing and recommending technologies, building systems for other departments, dealing with architectural decisions made by others before you. If so, you're what we call the accidental architect—a role that’s become increasingly common in our world of complex, distributed systems and teams.
