Workshop title

The sum of all tears: avoiding regret in architectural designs


If you’re a developer who cares about building for scale or wonder why certain design decisions were made in the past, this session is for you. In this talk, you’ll learn how to diagram systems architecture and make thoughtful architectural decisions. We’ll review three scenarios with unique scaled product cases with distinct systems requirements. In each case, we’ll design and draw a system architecture to meet the requirements and then discuss and debate the decisions made. Walk away learning how to assess, accept, and adapt designs and mistakes.
