Organization Design for effective Software Systems
For effective Cloud-connected software systems we need to organize our teams in certain ways. Taking account of Conway’s Law, we look to match the team structures to the required software architecture, enabling or restricting communication and collaboration for the best outcomes. In this workshop you will learn how to design your organization for modern, Cloud-connected software systems, covering topics such as: fundamental team topology types; how and when to use the fundamental team topologies; how to recognise other team topologies and to map these onto the fundamental types using topology fitness functions; the dynamics of team design and how team topologies should evolve; heuristics for discovering new topologies. On completion of the workshop, you should have a sound understanding of which team topologies to apply in different circumstances and why. Attendees are expected to have a basic understanding of Conway’s Law and of the DevOps Topologies patterns at http://devopstopologies.com/.
