Becoming a Better Software Architect
For more than two decades, Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute (SEI) has been instrumental in the creation and development of the field of software architecture. In our past webcasts, What Makes a Good Software Architect? and What Makes a Good Software Architect (2019 Edition)?, we have discussed what makes a good software architect. The range of knowledge and skills involved can be daunting, particularly given the pace of change in technologies and practices. In this session, a panel of architects discussed their personal paths to becoming software architects and how they have helped others on that journey.
