O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference | @OReillysacon

Event covers the full scope of a software architect's job, from IT to leadership and business skills

The O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference, March 16-19, 2015, Boston, MA, is a new event designed to provide the in-depth professional training that software architects and aspiring software architects need to succeed. A unique event, it covers the full scope of a software architect's job, from IT to leadership and business skills. It also provides a forum for networking and hearing what other professionals have learned in real-world experiences.

Software architecture is a massive multidisciplinary subject, covering many roles and responsibilities, which makes it challenging to teach because so much context is required for every subject. It's also a fast-moving discipline, where entire suites of best practices become obsolete overnight.

The title "Software Architect" frequently lands in the top 10 in annual surveys of best jobs, yet no clear path exists to move from developer to architect. The O'Reilly Software Architect Conference aims to supply the knowledge needed to progress on that path. As with all O'Reilly conferences, training is only one facet of the event. The conference will happen in the context of a larger conversation where the big ideas around software architecture are explored and the role of software architect in today's world is further defined.

Software architecture plays a key role in the success of any business. If software architecture is any part of your job - or the job you'd like to have - then you won't want to miss the O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference.

What You'll Find at the O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference
Hundreds of Software Architects, Tech Leads, Senior Developers and Engineers, CTOs and CIOs, and a wide range of other people who work to serve their organization's IT and business needs come together at this event to learn, network, and share experiences.

At the Software Architecture Conference, you'll immerse yourself in learning. The speakers are some of the brightest minds in the industry-people who work with the same technologies you use and have hard-earned experiences to share. The event offers a variety of forums for learning, from sessions with experts to the "hallway track" between sessions where you can informally connect and share questions, knowledge, and perspectives with their peers.

The Software Architecture Experience

  • Three days of in-depth professional training that cover software architecture fundamentals, real-world case studies, and the latest trends in technologies, frameworks, and techniques
  • Networking opportunities with hundreds of other developers, architects, and senior technologists
  • Multiple occasions-including the hallway track, Exhibit Hall, and after-hours events-for attendees, speakers, journalists, and vendors to debate and discuss issues of interest and importance

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
