Zen of Software Architecture

Do you dream of working on a team of enlightened people who create software that users love? Stop dreaming and start living! This DEV@SATURN talk will get you started on your journey.

Zen is now ready to overtake our offices and enable our teams to create software together. I’ve spent more than 15 years in software development and gone from being a web developer, to a database administrator, to a project manager, to a business analyst, to an end-to-end solutions architect, to a product manager. The patterns I see repeated over and over again include teams missing deadlines, unhappy users, buggy code, and over-budget software. The reasons I blame for this are also the same time and time again: teams fighting, not understanding each other, being stuck in the past, not understanding the users, and overall stressful team environments.

This presentation lays out a step-by-step process to create a new awareness, first in yourself and then, you’ll be surprised to notice, in your team members.
