Kickstart your software architecture career

Join Neal Ford and Mark Richards to hear about their new book Fundamentals of Software Architecture.

In this webinar, they'll be exploring the book's key ideas, including the notion of invalidating axioms.

Axioms in mathematics and science are the things assumed to be true, as the basis for new theories and discoveries. We have axioms in the software development world as well, but they're built on quicksand rather than bedrock. Unlike almost any other discipline, the software development ecosystems constantly shifts and changes. We make assumptions about things like software architecture, but the shifting ecosystem slowly invalidates the foundations of that decision.

Mark and Neal will explore how teams can invalidate their own axioms to help break out of slumps and foster innovation.
