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.

Software Architecture training courses

Immerse yourself in two days of in-depth education on critical topics. Each training course takes place 18-19 October and is limited in size to maintain a high level of learning and instructor interaction.


The conference will take place at the Hilton London Metropole in vibrant Central London, where some of Europe’s best theatres, shopping, dining, and nightlife is just a short tube ride away.
