SAG 2021 Session Recording: “Essential Architectural Thinking”
Why, What, How, When and How Much?
There is a lot of confusion regarding architectural work these days. When? How much? Who? Tons of heated debates, and nobody is asking the essential question: Why? But without asking Why, all the other questions are futile.
Thus, this session at the Software Architecture Gathering 2021 by Uwe Friedrichsen will start by asking: *Why* do we need architectural work? Which problem(s) does it address? After finding some surprising answers, the next question will be: *How* can we do it best? What are the key activities of architectural work? And finally: *When* should we do *what* and *how much*, depending on the given context? After this session, a clearer picture of what architectural work actually is about will exist – stripped down to its pure essence.
