Dev Connect Belfast

Come and join renowned industry trainer Kevlin Henney for a customised Tech Lead training event - DevArch: Software Architecture for Developers.

What can you expect from the training?

Software architecture is a common term in software development, but what does it mean? What does good software architecture look like, and what is the relationship between developers and software architecture?

In this session we’ll explore what software architecture is and why it’s the responsibility of developers, not just people with the job title “architect“. We’ll look at the big picture view of architecture, the relationship between code and architecture, and what developers can do to ensure that good code supports and creates good architecture.
