If anyone is interested in hearing more about my views on architecture, and how agile methods apply to the work of the architect, please sign up for the 2006 Enterprise Architecture Conference in London in June.
I’m presenting a paper entitled “The Agile Architect”. This focuses on both how agile projects can have a strong architecture, and how architects can learn and benefit from agile approaches. I take a rather different approach to some recent papers with a similar title (e.g. at this week’s otherwise excellent Microsoft Architecture Insight conference), which suggest that agile projects can “do away with the architect”.
I look forwards to seeing you there.
