SATURN 2007 keynote by Jeromy Carrière
This talk is a retrospective, journaling experiences
practicing architecture in environments as varied as telecommunications,
academia, dot com and post-dot com era startups, a large (very!) independent
software vendor and enterprises in media and financial services. Each
environment provided many lessons that served to shape and guide the approaches
to the discipline-the art and the science-of architecture: building on the base
skills of software engineering, adding a structural modeling perspective for
architecture definition, achieving an appreciation of the fundamental nature of
architectural quality, and accumulating a deep respect for the human dynamics
that drive organizations.
