Some weeks ago a client approached us because he wanted some assistance with his IT infrastructure. The client has many systems that interact with each other and are quite tightly coupled. Due to some upcoming changes in their business, the time had come to start thinking about how to improve their architecture. One of the goals of the project was that they wanted the ability to decouple the systems so that they could change systems independently of each other. Our solution ended up being a really powerful combination of Apache Camel and Scala.
Have you ever wondered why there is no platform focused on agile software architecture? Have you ever felt the need to share knowledge, ask questions and discuss about these subjects together with other experts?
Well, we did!
Therefore, on September 19, 2012, Avisi presents the:
Not only at Avisi, but throughout the entire software industry, we noticed the need of creating a platform for the software architect in an agile environment. The symposium will focus on new development in software architecture and software architecture in agile projects.
Some interesting (international) speakers will be there to share their knowledge, answer question en discuss about several subjects within software architecture.
Feel free to contact us for more information on the symposium and stay posted by following the symposium website and twitter @Avisi_IT#ASAS2012
This is an opportunity to share knowledge of this important subject and make a difference in our industry! Please register online, to make sure there’s a spot for you at the Agile Software Architecture Symposium of 2012!
We’ll see you there!
On October 19th and 20th I attended the Software Architect 2011 conference in London. The conference was intended for technical architects and the published list of topics really made me want to go there to get some fresh ideas and inspiration about development in general and technical architecture in particular.
We made it for the last day of Devoxx! A bit tired after the Devoxx party at the NOXX, but luckily there were only two sessions and a keynote today. Like previous years the keynote on friday was a “technical” discussion panel with people from/representing Oracle, Google, Microsoft, JUG’s, open source. Everybody could ask questions which unfortunately meant that the talk was less technical and more politics. With a lot of political questions which of course the panelists couldn’t answer.
The day started with an android focused keynote by Google. It was definitely a better presentation than the keynote of day one. Despite that it was about android, Tim Bray showed us where the mobile market is going. Touching topics such as monetizing your app, new android features, comparison with the competition (Apple and Microsoft).
17.00 – Everybody is excited about going to the conference. We just have to commit our last changes and we’re off to Antwerp!
19:30 – Checked-in at our Hotel and on our way for some delicious beers
?? – Back at our hotel…
