Presentation: "Software Architecture Paradigms and Styles"

Time: Monday 10:15 - 11:15

Location: Lille Sal


Software architectures are influenced by many factors. Some are obvious, such a system's requirements, others are more hidden. One such less obvious factor is the general type of application domain, independent of its specifics. For example, it has a direct impact on the way we must design whether workflows are controlling physical or logical processes, like oil production vs. creating a work plan or report, regardless of the system's concrete responsibilities. Not preparing architectures appropriately can lead projects quickly into trouble.

This talk explores fundamental paradigms and styles that help you define sound architectural frameworks for your applications, so that they can safely resist the forces and requirements to which they are subjected.

Level: Intermediate

Keywords: Software Architecture, Architecture Styles, Architecture Paradigms, Problem Frames
