Talk TitleWhat is in a software Architecture from a company culture.
AbstractHow can we craft a modern software architecture with the ideas of an old fashioned company culture? During this journey I am going to explore the way the culture of a self-managed company is reflecting software by focusing on several practices (Mondora.com).
As Melvyn Conway says: “organizations which design systems … are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations”. Often organizations believe in software as the game-changer while forgetting that it is “just a shadow” of the actual organization.
Decentralization, cohesion and resilience of services are topics that resonate to the architecture only once they become core aspects of the company and not only of the delivery. During this speech I am going to address several aspects of a new normal company and reflect on the benefit they create in people, in developers and, finally into the architecture. It is a mashup of processes, people and technology. For instance, autonomy of people enforces the idea of autonomous services. I’m going to unveil some of the practices of a virtuous benefit corporation that builds better software for a better world.
