O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference 2018

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. You'll hear about the tools they use and why, and the effect they've had on their work, focusing on:

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 our Buddies Program and 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 February 25-26 and is limited in size to maintain a high level of learning and instructor interaction.
