We are please to invite you for the next Manchester geek night with Rebecca Parsons, ThoughtWorks CTO about Principles and Techniques of Evolutionary Architecture on 6:45PM, 21st of August at The Studios Manchester.
Principles and Techniques of Evolutionary Architecture
With business models and business needs changing so rapidly, an adaptable architecture is critical to allow systems to change to cope. Historically, adaptability has been sought through anticipating the places where a system must be adaptable and through various architectural approaches such as Service Oriented Architectures or Component Based Designs. However, recent experiences have shown these approaches to be inadequate, at least as currently practiced.
This talk presents some principles of evolutionary architecture that allow systems to respond to change without needing to predict the future. We then describe three approaches that realize these principles and discuss how these approaches support adaptability of systems in an evolutionary way.
