Architectural Kata (with Tarot) (Martin Salias)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop is based on my personal flavor of Ted Neward's Architectural Katas, with adds a focus on iterative design and use my Architectural Tarot deck and its use as a communication device to support it.
We run a short simulation on the development of an agile product:
In each of three 15 minutes iterations:
  • Each iteration is about a product release
  • Participants use the Tarot deck to discuss Quality Attributes trade-off, and then draw a quick High Level Solution diagram for this release
  • As a Facilitator, I go around and review their solutions, telling them (invented) consequences after the release which affect the product plans (specially architectural challenges)

Learning Outcomes:
  • - Taking architectural decisions at the Last Responsible Moment
  • - Leverage this to stay flexible
  • - Importance of automatic validation (a hint of)
  • - The need to have these debates in the open between business people and teams, and away for Ivory Tower Architects
