For two decades, the SEI has been instrumental in the creation and development of the field of software engineering known as software architecture. An architect whose skills and capabilities match a project's needs is more likely to be successful. So what are those skills?
In this webinar, SEI researchers and an industry colleague discussed in two talks What Makes a Good Software Architect?
- John Klein and Andrew Kotov on Skills and Knowledge of Successful Architects
- Ipek Ozkaya and Michael Keeling on Architects Design Trade-off Toolbox: Balancing Agility and Technical Debt
What viewers will learn:
- How the technical skills needed by a software architect change throughout a system's lifecycle and how this influences the architect's success
- How architects should be the champions of product quality while making the right (and timely) design trade-offs
