Session: Old school architecture

Thursday, 17:00 - 17:50
Track: Architecture

Every year, we seem to get smarter and more adventurous with our architectures for this crazy changing world that has seen client-server, n-tier, SOA, Big Data, REST and lots more. While each expedition is filled with the thrill of adventure, I often see teams creating old messes in new territory with cool new toys. In this talk I will highlight some fail points and revert to old school ideas to use them in these new adventures. Hopefully, we will make smaller messes, myself included.
