Building Evolutionary Architectures
Things can change on a dime, leaving your teams unprepared, using outdated technologies. What is evolutionary architecture, and how do you build it? This keynote from W-JAX explores this architectural approach and how you can start focusing on change as a principle. Watch and learn from the mind of Patrick Kua, Chief Scientist and former CTO of the modern bank N26.
In our industry, one of the only guarantees is change. Many of today’s tools, technologies, and business models will soon cease to exist, only to be replaced by newer ones. Architects face the challenge of planning for today’s systems knowing that the problems of tomorrow will be completely different from the problems of today. Evolutionary architecture is an architectural approach that prioritises change as a first principle but balances this need with delivering value early.
