SATURN 2007 keynote by Jeromy Carrière

This talk is a retrospective, journaling experiences practicing architecture in environments as varied as telecommunications, academia, dot com and post-dot com era startups, a large (very!) independent software vendor and enterprises in media and financial services. Each environment provided many lessons that served to shape and guide the approaches to the discipline-the art and the science-of architecture: building on the base skills of software engineering, adding a structural modeling perspective for architecture definition, achieving an appreciation of the fundamental nature of architectural quality, and accumulating a deep respect for the human dynamics that drive organizations.
