XConf 2018 EU - Rebecca Parsons
For many years, software architecture was described as "the parts that are hard to change later". But then microservices showed that if architects build evolvability into the architecture, change becomes easier. This talk, based on the recently published book Building Evolutionary Architectures co-authored by Rebecca and Neal Ford, investigates how to build evolvable systems. The software development ecosystem exists in a state of dynamic equilibrium, where any new tool, framework or technique leads to disruption and the establishment of a new equilibrium.
