For a variety of reasons, parts of software systems defy change, becoming more brittle and intractable over time. However, the world we inhabit has exactly the opposite characteristic. Business constantly changes, but so does the software development ecosystem: new tools, techniques, approaches, and frameworks constantly impact that equilibrium in unanticipatable ways. Over the last few years, incremental developments in core engineering practices for software development allow us to rethink how architecture changes over time, along with ways to protect important architectural characteristics as it evolves. This session ties those parts together with a new way to think about architecture and time.

This session, based on our eponymous book, describes how to build architectures that embrace change, along with safeguards to protect important architectural characteristics. Along the way, we also answer the questions How is long term planning possible when everything changes all the time? and Once I’ve built an architecture, how can I prevent it from gradually degrading?

This session defines evolutionary architecture, describes the engineering practices required to implement it, along with safety mechanism to protect important parts. We also describe how to build architectures that support change, along with pitfalls and anti-patterns.
