Evolving Architecture @ Quality Excites 2017

Evolving Architecture, 15:50 – 16:30, Block A

When developing a system, it is very easy to cross a certain boundary – on the one hand we want to predict all possibilities and changes that can happen in our project. On the other hand, when we are under the time pressure, we take shortcuts which could in the end increase cost of the smallest changes. How to deal with “overdesign”? How, at the same time, not to close for improvement and changes? When should we make crucial technical decisions and when to accept technical debt? This talk is about true stories, mostly about huge mistakes, but also about decisions that in the end were very sucessfull. The talk is dedicated to all of those who don’t want to end up with a project that needs to be rewritten whenever we want to add a new button. The session is for all of those who care.

I did this talk recently at 4Developers conference. You can find event on my blog too. However this time it will be slightly different as I will talk mostly about topics related to quality during evolution of architecture.
