Master
TechTalks by ThoughtWorks Romania

Webinar | Thursday, April 22

TechTalks by ThoughtWorks Romania is a forum where we share and discuss recent developments in the tech world, projects that both inspire and challenge, and how to stay on top of the ever-shifting tech landscape.


We are happy to welcome Rebecca Parsons, CTO at ThoughtWorks, to our first edition of TechTalks by ThoughtWorks Romania.

With technology, business models and business needs changing so rapidly, an adaptable architecture is critical to allow systems to cope with change. Historically, adaptability has been sought through anticipating the places where a system must be adaptable and through various architectural approaches. However, recent experiences have shown these approaches to be inadequate, at least as currently practiced. 


In this talk Rebecca presents some principles of evolutionary architecture that allow systems to respond to change without needing to predict the future. We then briefly describe approaches that realize these principles and discuss how these approaches support adaptability of systems in an evolutionary way.
