O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference 2016 - London, United Kingdom

Video description

The title "Software Architect" frequently lands in the top 10 in annual surveys of best jobs, yet no clear path exists to move from developer to architect. SACON 2016 EU London supplies the knowledge needed to progress on that path—and to keep those already holding that title updated and inspired. "Engineering the Future of Software" was the theme of this conference featuring 75 of Europe and the world’s top software architects, agility coaches, CTOs, developer advocates, microservices masters, meme wranglers, cloud developers, and solutions architects. This video compilation contains each presentation delivered by that august group—more than 80 hours of material—covering every aspect of a software architect's job: from coding leadership and business skill to standards setting, systems design, and more.

  • Get a front-row view for each of SACON EU’s 75 speakers, 6 tutorials, 6 keynotes, and 75 sessions
  • Tutorials on Docker security/performance, continuously delivered Node.js pipelines, and more
  • 17 SA fundamentals sessions; 16 microservices; 9 integration architecture; 8 distributed systems
  • Matt Stine (Pivotal) on using Spring and Cloud Foundry to deliver cloud-native architectures
  • Lorna Mitchell (IBM Cloud) on the need to build/ship documentation before writing API code
  • Allen Holub (Holub Associates) on the fundamentals of messaging and ZeroMQ
  • Dirkjan Bussink (GitHub) on GitHub Enterprise—the on-premises version of GitHub.com
  • Simon Brown (Structurizr) on the art of visualizing software architecture
  • Patrick Kua (Thoughtworks) on evolutionary architectured systems that last and easily change
  • Multiple sessions on security, devops, reactive, UX design, scale, and optimization
