The importance of embracing both agile software development techniques and a solid software architecture focus is not questioned by software engineers and organizations. However, balancing the two still is a mysterious art rather than common practice.
The phrase “agile architecture” evokes two concepts: 1. A system or software architecture that is versatile, easy to evolve, and easy to modify, while resilient enough not to degrade after a few changes. 2. An agile way to define an architecture, using an iterative lifecycle, allowing the architectural design to tactically evolve over time, as the problem and the constraints are better understood. In the best of worlds, we’d like to have an agile process that leads to a flexible architecture.
Agile Architecting is a course designed to help developers, architects, and managers learn how to introduce software architecture into agile software development. We will cover concepts such as
  • quality attributes and agile requirements
  • aligning architecture and organization
  • delivery infrastructures for agile development
  • developing your runway.
We will play a design game about big data systems to simulate architecting in an agile and iterative incremental manner. We will end by discussing small targeted changes that software teams can make today to ensure architectural tasks successfully enable agile development.
