Interested in how you can break the mould of tightly-coupled software architectures and risk management theatre? In this talk Steve Smith will outline some design patterns that will make software architecture less of an impediment to Continuous Delivery.
Continuous Delivery asks that we optimise lead times in order to grow product revenues, but all too often the cost of the technical change outweighs the value of the business change.
We will discuss how software architecture is often an impediment to Continuous Delivery. Also outline some design patterns - Tolerant Reader, API Examples, Consumer Driven Contracts - that form a low-cost risk reduction strategy.
