Welcome

The organisers of DevWeek are delighted to announce that the 7th annual Software Architect Conference will be returning once again this October.

In addition to welcoming back some of the key speakers from last year, such as Simon Brown, Eoin Woods and Nathanial T Schutta, we are thrilled to announce a number of new speakers, including Tom Gilb, Roy Osherove and Fred George.

Due to the popularity and growth of the event, we are excited to announce that we have relocated to a brand-new venue. The Hotel Russell, situated in Central London, has fantastic conference facilities and is ideally suited to the format of Software Architect.

So, if you are – or want to become – a software architect, we hope to see you there!

4) Share your ticket!

Only have the time to attend one day? Need to share your ticket with others in your team? If you can’t attend the whole event, you can still make sure that someone from your company does!

5) Don’t miss a session!

Can’t be in two places at once? Catch up with any vital breakout sessions you missed, online, after the event. With six concurrent tracks, there will inevitably be times when you have to choose between two equally important breakout sessions. This year, you won’t miss out! All breakout sessions (subject to speaker approval) will be filmed and provided online for all registered delegates.
