In this presentation, Rebecca Wirfs-Brock presents some practical lessons she has learned from doing architectural reviews. Many times projects are not delivered in time, or have quality problems or have an incomplete set of features due to architectural flaws. The reviews are meant to highlight existing risks and strengths of the architecture, and to reveal issues initially neglected.
Rebecca Wirfs-Brock invented the way of thinking about objects known as Responsibility-Driven Design. She is lead author of the classic Designing Object-Oriented Software, and Object Design: Roles, Responsibilities and Collaborations. She is the design columnist for IEEE Software and past board member of the Agile Alliance.
JAOO is the premier European developer conference on software technology, methods and best practices. The conference presents in-depth presentations and tutorials by researchers, engineers and trend-setters in software engineering and technology.
Thanks for sharing the experiences
it would be great if you can also share some of your experiences of design reviews of object oriented applications! This would be of great value considering majority of architects are regularly engaged in application designs using object oriened paradigm.
Cost versus good architecture
