All software architecture, all the time

Join us in London for four inspiring days spent drilling down into the real nuts and bolts of software architecture:

  • Delve into architectural fundamentals and best practices
  • Get a practical look at trending technologies such as microservices, cloud architecture patterns, and chaos engineering
  • Learn how others are successfully dealing with legacy systems and software
  • Acquire strategies for meeting your company's business goals and hone your leadership abilities
  • Build skills with hands-on architectural exercises woven throughout sessions, tutorials, and 2-day training courses
  • Enjoy unparalleled networking opportunities—meet industry leaders and share ideas with peers

The O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference arms you with the skills for assessing and recommending technologies, building systems for other departments as well as your entire organization, and making smart architectural decisions—all skills that can help you on your chosen career path.

The entire program has been vetted by a panel of expert architects and will be taught by the leading minds in the field. But the most valuable part, according to many attendees, are the opportunities to make new connections, bounce your ideas off others, and compare notes. At Software Architecture, you’ll get value at every turn. Start making your plans to attend now. Need help convincing your manager? We've got you covered.

Software Architecture Training Courses

Immerse yourself in two days of in-depth education on critical topics. Training courses take place 31 October-1 November and are limited in size to maintain a high level of learning and instructor interaction.

Three things that set this conference apart

Depth: Sessions can go deep into complex subjects because the whole conference is about software architecture. We have traditional 50-minutes sessions, but we also feature 90-minute sessions to allow for deeper dives, as well as 2-day training courses and half-day tutorials to provide the in-depth training your job requires.

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. Get up to speed on trending topics, take in the lessons learned from case studies, or study something altogether new.

Networking: With the diverse and supportive community at this conference, you’ll find it easy to connect with your peers. From our topic tables at lunch to Architectural Katas, a good-natured team competition, there are a wealth of opportunities to get together with friends, make new acquaintances, and enjoy the company of fellow architects.

Diversity and inclusion at Software Architecture

We believe that true innovation depends on hearing from, and listening to, people with a variety of perspectives. Please read our Diversity Statement.

We're committed to creating a safe and productive environment for everyone at all of our events. Please read our Code of Conduct.


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.
