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.
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 the tools you use and why, and the effect they've had on your work. What are your strategies for meeting your company's business goals, developing leadership skills, and making the conceptual jump from software developer to architect?
We're interested in technical topics like:
How has the role of architect broadened in recent years, encompassing new disciplines like DevOps, microservices, and serverless? Architecture and the architect's role continue to evolve, and we want your help documenting that journey.
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—you'll find plenty of opportunities to bounce ideas off fellow architects or just commiserate.
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 Midtown, a spectacular location just steps from Central Park, Times Square, and world-class entertainment destinations.
