O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference - Shaping and Communicating Architecture

Speaker Session

Seth Dobbs spoke at the San Jose O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference June 11, 2019, on Shaping and Communicating Architecture. 

For architects and tech leads that have trouble getting their development team to buy into their approach, see the issues they bring to the business owner shot down, or experience a disconnect with the design team resulting in being given designs that can’t be built on time and on budget, Seth Dobbs gives you the tools and strategies to become a more effective communicator by discussing:

  • The role of architects and tech leads and what we need to communicate
  • Our different stakeholders and what they need to know
  • A process for shaping and communicating solutions
  • Different communication (and listening) styles and how to effectively alter your style to be better heard

This event has happened already

The O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference is designed to provide the necessary professional training that software architects and aspiring software architects need to succeed. A unique event, it covers the full scope of a software architect's job, from IT to leadership and business skills. It also provides a forum for networking and hearing what other professionals have learned in real-world experiences.

The title "Software Architect" frequently lands in the top 10 in annual surveys of best jobs, yet no clear path exists to move from developer to architect. The O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference aims to supply the knowledge needed to progress on that path. As with all O'Reilly conferences, training is only one facet of the event. The conference will happen in the context of a larger conversation where the big ideas around software architecture are explored and the role of software architect in today's world is further defined.
