Retrofitting Architecture from Øredev Conference on Vimeo.

We can do without architecture early on, but at some point a clearly communicated architecture offers big productivity benefits to developers who otherwise drown in the expanding implementation-level detail. When you realize you are heading for a Big Ball of Mud, you have 3 choices – start over, suffer on, or knock your codebase into shape. This talk outlines principles, options and examples using Structure101 to get the best return for the cost and intellectual effort invested in a codebase.


The State of API Integration Report provides data from the Cloud Elements platform and will help all developers navigate the recent explosion of APIs and the implications of API integrations to work more efficiently in 2017 and beyond.
