Solution Architecture for future frameworks


This event has passed

Abstract

Fragmentation of the tools, languages, and approaches seems to be speeding up. Each week new frameworks are created and old ones ( or recently created ones ) are abandoned in the pursuit of a better way. In this talk we will be exploring the causes for this rush and how to approach your application and solution design to avoid risk of obsolescence. We will explore some tools and decision making practices that balance the current needs, with likely future evolution in software.
