We'll be glad to discuss, please drop us an email.
Everyone involved in software development agrees that architecture is highly important, yet, we try to create it when we have the least understanding of the applications or systems we build. Evolving architecture has risks, but creating one up-front architecture has its own perils. In this class we will discuss the why and how of evolving architecture. We will start with a quick discussion on the reasons and risk. Then we will dive into discussing the principles and practices that can help us to evolve the architectures we create. We will conclude with some recommendations for the approaches we can take.
