Creating Evolutionary Architecture and Design: From Problem to Solution by exploring patterns

Track: Architecture
Architecture is not a static representation of a system. There are several complexities and risks involved in creating them. One way to mitigate the risk is to evolve the architecture. But, there are risks of evolving as much as there are the risks of not evolving. In this interactive workshop we will explore a set of practices that we can use to mitigate the risks. Then we will dive into discussing some common and popular architectural patterns. Finally, we will take some example applications and discuss how to evolve architecture to meet the needs of those applications.
