The software architect’s career path is not well defined in the tech industry. It’s hard to find resources to bridge the gap on the conceptual journey from developer to software architect.
We want to hear about real world experience, including the benefits and pitfalls, of architectural decisions. How do frameworks and other architectural underpinnings perform under the crucible of real-world challenges?
The O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference is one of the few events focusing on leadership and what it takes to be a leader in software architecture design, development, and deployment. We need your help amplifying the importance of this role in an organization and creating a wealth of information to move this discipline forward. What learning path did you take? How can we raise the visibility of our skills and share core concepts to help other developers do better in their roles?
We suggest a few ideas below, but feel free to go beyond them. We’re particularly seeking presentations that include real-world experience, innovative ideas, and/or ideas that challenge outdated dogma. However, all interesting ideas, presented in interesting ways, are welcome.
If you want to submit a great proposal, see our tips on how to submit a proposal. The deadline for submissions is 11:59pm ET on September 12.
You’ll be asked to include the following information for your proposal:
Proposals will be considered for both 50 and 90 minute presentations as well as 3-hour tutorials. Fifty-minute sessions will be interspersed throughout the conference to introduce new concepts, a best practice, a view into the future while 90-minute sessions will dive deeper giving you information, techniques, and workflows you can bring back to work and begin using immediately. And, finally, we are looking for intense 3-hour tutorials that involve hands-on examples, working with other attendees, and frameworks and processes to implement for significant change in your current architecture.
