Open Decision in Architectural Evolution

Open Decision in Architectural Evolution

Abstract: Evolving software architectures involves balancing many factors, and maintaining that balance can be challenging for any architect. By opening up the decision process for evolution we can harness the insight of fellow developers, communicate plans and designs more effectively, and produce a useful record of the work we do. In this presentation we’ll look at a specific lightweight technique – Open Design Proposals – which has proven its effectiveness in many projects. We’ll examine implementations of this approach, see why it’s effective, and show how development teams can use it to manage their own architecture.
