What an architect can learn from retrospective failures
Based on 15 years of experience with facilitating retrospectives for software developers, I have described the most common challenges in 24 antipatterns. Antipatterns are like patterns, just more informative in that you first learn what the immediate bad solution is before you get a better solution. Alongside the retrospectives I have facilitated architecture reviews and there are a lot of similarities between these two activities. Both include a shared experience that needs to be reflected on, both include people with pride and shame in what has been created, and both are under the usual time and resource constraints. Join me for a sad and entertaining talk about how your architecture review sessions can improve based on all my mistakes.
