"Let your architecture emerge" and "Always implement what you actually need, never what you think you might need." However, complex software systems have lots of moving parts, dependencies, challenges, and unknowns. Counting on the software architecture to properly evolve without any planning or design investigations can be risky. On agile projects, software architecture activities should not be pie-in-the-sky experiments that slow down the delivery of working code. Yet producing working code based on a shaky architecture isn't sustainable either. This workshop was developed by Rebecca Wirfs-Brock, inventor of Responsibility-Driven Design in order to bring practical architecture techniques and practices to an agile audience.

In this workshop you'll learn practices and techniques for effectively defining, refining, and evolving your software architecture that support agile values. You'll learn the difference between architecting on a small team and architecting on larger, more complex projects as well as what it takes to be a successful architectural wayfinder and design steward.
