Why We Need Architects (and Architecture) on Agile Projects

Complex software always has an architecture, even if it isn’t intentional. But being agile isn’t enough to enough guarantee a sustainable architecture. It isn’t prudent to just keep your code clean and hope that good architecture will just emerge. Especially when there is a lot of technical risk, interdependencies, and conflicting priorities. Good architecture requires ongoing attention and stewardship. This talk presents several techniques and architectural activities that are useful on agile projects and explains how an agile architect’s role can and should differ from that of a traditional
software architect.

Rebecca’s talk is now available on the Chariot Solutions site.
