From developer to architect

The O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference builds skills by focusing 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 engineering architecture teams that design, implement, and deploy it.

Expert speakers will share new techniques and approaches, proven best practices, and essential technical skills with the engineers, developers, tech leads, and managers who bridge business and technology. We'll hear about the tools they use and why, and the effect they've had on their work, focusing on application, microservices, event-driven, enterprise, and evolutionary architectures.

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.

Architecture and the architect's role continue to evolve and broaden, encompassing new disciplines like DevOps, serverless, continuous delivery, and security. Join us at Software Architecture and explore strategies for meeting your company's business goals, developing leadership skills, and making the conceptual jump from software developer to architect.
