Architecture in Agile Projects

Architecture: Big design up front, or cowboy ‘design-it-as-you-go’ coding?

Summary

Architecture: Big design up front, or cowboy ‘design-it-as-you-go’ coding? In agile projects we hear that BDUF is evil. Does that mean that agile requires no architecture? Is there no more need for architects in agile projects? Neither could be farther from the truth. In this talk, Mitch Lacey, former Microsoft Program Manager, will walk you through a case study of one of his projects to show you how they architected a system that required 99.999% uptime and supported 5 million users – all while using Scrum and XP.
