The strength to fully support your organization

Imagine the health and success of an entire business resting completely on your shoulders. Now, run—full speed—while dodging obstacles coming at you from every angle, all the time. That's software architecture in a nutshell, and it's why it's so hard to keep up. Enter the O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference, which is designed to help senior developers, engineers, tech leads, and software architects get the training they need to get ahead of the pack. They'll walk away with the confidence to design, build, improve, and communicate the architectures that are the foundation of all modern software systems.

The call for speakers is open for Software Architecture

The Software Architecture Conference is coming back to New York in February, and we're looking for speakers to share new techniques and approaches, proven best practices, and exceptional technical skills. We want to hear from you. 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 and developing leadership skills?

Apply to speak at Software Architecture to build your brand as a thought leader in your field, make connections, and grow your skills through teaching—plus receive a free pass to attend the conference. For the 2020 program, we're interested in speakers on topics that address:

  • Application architecture
  • Event-driven architecture
  • Cloud computing
  • Domain-driven design
  • Distributed systems
  • Compliance and regulation
  • How startup organizations should address software architecture
  • How architecture interacts with the rest of the organization, particularly continuous delivery, DevOps, and security
  • Evolutionary architectures
  • Enterprise architecture
  • Microservices architecture
  • "Nontechnical" skills and techniques
  • Serverless architecture
  • AI and machine learning
  • Data flow
  • Service mesh technology

As software architecture and development continue to evolve, we want your help documenting the journey. Submit your ideas by August 20, 2019, and become a part of the only conference that covers the technical breadth and depth that every veteran and aspiring architect needs.
