  • Abstract

     For two decades, the SEI has been instrumental in the creation and development of the field of software engineering known as software architecture. An architect whose skills and capabilities match a project's needs is more likely to be successful. So what are those skills?

    In this webinar, SEI researchers and an industry colleague discussed in two talks What Makes a Good Software Architect?

    • John Klein and Andrew Kotov on Skills and Knowledge of Successful Architects
    • Ipek Ozkaya and Michael Keeling on Architects Design Trade-off Toolbox: Balancing Agility and Technical Debt

    What viewers will learn:

    • How the technical skills needed by a software architect change throughout a system's lifecycle and how this influences the architect's success
    • How architects should be the champions of product quality while making the right (and timely) design trade-offs
