Building a Software Architecture Community (SATURN 2006)

April 2006 Presentation
Rob Wojcik

In this 2006 presentation, Rob Wojcik discusses how to turn the SATURN workshop into a network that is available to its members throughout the year.


Software Engineering Institute



The Software Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Workshop is an effort to foster an exchange of best practices in developing and acquiring software architectures. During this working session we will discuss experiences with building a software architecture community of practice both within an organization and ideas for growing SATURN beyond a yearly workshop and into a network available to members throughout the year.

Participants should think about the following questions:

  1. Who are the stakeholders in your organization that have an interest in software architecture?
  2. How does software architecture information flow in your organization?
  3. Where do you go for information on software architecture?
  4. What opportunities for exchanging ideas would you like to see?
