Speaking at the IT Architect Regional Conference in Atlanta
At the end of February (the 25th - 27th), I'll be making a rare Atlanta conference appearance at the IT Architect Regional Conference, hosted by the International Association of Software Architects (IASA). This is the first in a series of regional conferences focused on an important but generally neglected segment of the developer population, software architects. What that title actually means is some matter of debate (hey, maybe this conference will help define that term), but the topics covered certainly trod some important ground. I'm doing a short version of my Smithying in the 21st Century keynote (overviewed here). My ThoughtWorks colleague Steven "Doc" List will also be there, imported from the west coast, convening an open space called Beyond Fight or Flight: Meetings Don’t Have to be Gladiatorial Combat, which sounds quite interesting. It's still not too late to sign up for it; hope to see you there.
