    December 11, 2019

    The first Global Architecture Summit was a great success, attracting a large number of people from across Europe and beyond.

  2. JAX London 2019

    I was very pleased to get a talk accepted for JAX London this Autumn. It was a new security talk on secure implementation, titled “Building Applications Securely” which seemed to be well received.

  3. ACCU 2019

    August 16, 2019

    ACCU 2019 was another great event in this venerable UK conference series, well done to Russell Winder and the team who ran it this year. I was lucky enough to be able to present a talk on how security principles help development teams to make good decisions about the security of their systems.

  4. SPA 2019

    July 6, 2019

    I ran a session, with Andy Longshaw and Nick Rozanski, on technical debt at the BCS SPA 2019 conference in June, which went well. So well in fact that we are planning some sort of follow up workshop later in the year. In the meantime, the slides and session outputs are here.

    I was very pleased to have a session accepted at the well-known O’Reilly Software Architect New York conference, where I reran the session “Security Principles for the Working Architect” which had been well received at Software Architect London last year. I’m pleased to say that the session worked equally well in New York.

  7. DevTernity 2018

    November 30, 2018

    Having been unable to accept an invitation to speak at DevTernity in 2017, I was thrilled to be able to accept the redoubtable Eduards Sizovs‘ invitation to speak at the event in 2018. It’s a great event and seeing Riga in the snow was a great bonus! I presented an updated version of my talk…


    November 4, 2018

    I love visiting Scandinavia, so it was a particular pleasure to be asked to present a session on security design principles at GOTO CPH. A great event, very well organised, with informed and receptive attendees.

    After the success of the Software Architecture Day workshop in Timisoara, it was great to get the chance to run the event again in Cluj-Napoca (in Transylvania in northern Romania).
