Architecture with Agility

Kevlin Henney will conduct a 2-day workshop focussing on the relationship between agile processes and good architecture.

This is a 2-day workshop from June 25th to June 26th. 


Every system has an architecture, whether accidental or intentional, and regardless of whether it was put in place by a nominated architect or whether it emerged from the decisions and discussions of a team.


All too often the focus of what is often described as architecture is centered around a specific set of platform technologies, which forms only one part of the set of concerns an architecture should. And all too often architecture is seen as a separate concern from development process, whereas the two are intertwined — what you build is influenced by how you build it, and vice versa.


This workshop looks at the relationship between agile processes and good architecture, taking in development process models, architectural styles, requirements techniques, sufficient modelling techniques, design patterns and testing practices. The day includes a number of exercises and opportunities for discussion so that attendees can see how the different concepts fit together.​

Target audience: Architects, developers and other technical roles in software development, plus managers and product owners with a technical background.

Speaker Bio

Kevlin is an independent consultant, trainer, reviewer and writer based in the UK. His development interests are in patterns, programming, practice and process. He has been a columnist for various magazines and web sites, a contributor to open source software and a member of more committees than is probably healthy (it has been said that “a committee is a cul-de-sac down which ideas are lured and then quietly strangled”). He is co-author of A Pattern Language for Distributed Computing and On Patterns and Pattern Languages, two volumes in the Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture series. He is also editor of 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know.



This is a closed workshop for employees from Destination AARhus member companies.


LIMITED SEATS! There are 20 seats, which will be distributed by a first-comes-first principle. Your attendance is expected both workshop days.
