Simon Brown, TweetCoding the Architecture
Biography: Simon Brown
Simon is an independent consultant based in Jersey, the founder of Coding the Architecture and either a software architect who codes or a software developer who understands architecture. Having successfully delivered a variety of projects on the .NET and Java platforms, Simon now uses his experience to train and coach teams in delivering better software.
Applying the building metaphor to software doesn't necessarily work, although in medieval times the people that architected buildings were the select few that made into the exclusive society of master-builders. The clue here is in the name and a master-builder really was a master of their craft. Once elevated to this status though, did the master-builder continue to build or was that task left to those less noble? Fast-forward several hundred years and it seems we're asking the same question. Join us as we look at how master-builders fit into our modern world of software development before looking at how my own role has evolved over the years.
