Pragmatic Architecture (and Katas!) with Ted Neward (author, IBM champion, international key note speaker)
One day masterclass for software architects

20 September 2019, Hilton Garden Inn Bucharest

First time in Romania   |   One full day masterclass   |   20 September 2019, Bucharest


Ever wondered what a software architect is? Or what a software architecture is? Ever wondered what a software architect does? Even if you are one?

“In this session, we’ll explore what software architecture is, what a software architect does, and why it seems nobody seems to “get” what software is like. In this full-day session, we’ll go over these questions, and more, then spend half the day practicing it in a small group doing an architectural kata for practice. Bring your big-picture glasses with you, because we are going to go to the top of the ivory tower, deconstruct it, and get to the real heart of what software architecture is and should be. This workshop will be 75% hands-on exercise and 25% theoretical. We will go for about 3 hours in lecture format, and then drop you into an Architectural Katas format. That would give you people a chance to practice more closely!”


Ted Neward currently labors on behalf of Smartsheet as the Director of Developer Relations, leveraging his speaking and writing experience to bring the joys of cloud-based spreadsheet and project management to the development world.

During his more code-focused years, he specialized in high-scale enterprise systems, working with clients ranging in size from Fortune 500 corporations to small 10-person shops.

He is an authority in Java and .NET technologies, particularly in the areas of Java/.NET integration (both in-process and via integration tools like Web services), programming languages of all forms, back-end enterprise software systems, and virtual machine/execution engine plumbing.

He is the author or co-author of several books, including Professional F# 2.0, Effective Enterprise Java, C# In a Nutshell, SSCLI Essentials, Server-Based Java Programming, and a contributor to several technology journals. All told, he has written close to a hundred articles in both print and online form.

Ted is also an IBM Champion of Cloud, has been a Microsoft F# MVP (having also been an Architect and C# MVP in prior years), an F# Insider, C# Insider, and VB Insider, INETA speaker, former DevelopMentor instructor, PluralSight course author, frequent worldwide conference speaker, and a member of various Java JSRs.
