So you think you might be an architect
Who is this presentation for?
- Aspiring or newly minted software architects and senior software engineers
We all hear the title software architect. It consistently makes the list of the most highly paid technical jobs. But you may not know what it means to be a software architect, what a software architect does, or how to become one. Perhaps someone gave you the title, but you’re not sure what’s expected of you. Or perhaps you suspect you might already be doing a job of a software architect, but can’t quite pinpoint how you made the leap or explain it to others.
Sonya Natanzon shares her perspective on what a software architect does, what skills are needed to become a software architect, how to develop those skills, and how to avoid software architect anti-patterns so you don’t become a bad one. A software architect provides multiple facets of leadership—technical, people, and thought. Learn what the right mixture is, how to achieve it, and how to compensate for deficiencies.
- A basic understanding of complex software development
