From OSCON 2015 in Amsterdam: Evolutionary architecture—also known as just-in-time architecture—is not as horrifying to mainstream developers and software architects as it once was. The techniques have evolved, as has our ability to maintain various capabilities using an evolutionary approach. If you’ve shunned evolutionary architecture in the past, it could be worth another look.
In this talk, we’ll look at common evolutionary architecture practices and how our use of them has evolved. We’ll also examine some of the enabling techniques and technologies that have aided both the growth and acceptance of this practice. Finally, we’ll explore possible new techniques and areas where you might want to apply evolutionary architecture.
