Software Architecture, Team Topologies and Complexity Science
Featuring James Lewis
Research from the Santa Fe institute on Complex Adaptive Systems over the last 20 years seems to point to a grand unified theory of organisational design. So have we cracked it? Do we now have the answer to the question: how do we create and scale high performing software and organisations?architecture-and-design high-performing-teams complexity-science team-topologies

Welcome to the Layouts of Tomorrow
Featuring Erin Zimmer
Historically, layout on the web has been quite difficult. We were basically limited to sizing elements either absolutely, or relative to their parent. And the positioning thing was even worse! As developers, we were forced to rely on hacks and third-party tools like Bootstrap to achieve the...

The Killer C's: Coupling, Cohesion, and Complexity
Featuring Michael Nygard
The Killer C’s are like cholesterol: there’s the good kind and the bad kind. When the bad kind gets out of control, it can destroy systems and even whole companies. What can we do to lower complexity and harmful coupling? How can we encourage cohesion and healthy coupling? In this talk, Michael...
Software Architecture for a Digital Age
Featuring Eoin Woods
Software architecture emerged in the 1990s and has been evolving ever since, from a directive, up-front activity, where a single architect created the architecture, which was then implemented by others, to today’s team-based adaptive architectural approaches where architecture is a shared...
