  1. GOTO CPH

    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.

  2. Software Architecture Days

    November 4, 2018

    I was approached by Libero to participate in their Software Architecture Days events, in Iași in November. I presented a day-long workshop on software architecture topics to about 50 people.

  3. JAX London 2017

    October 28, 2018

    I was very pleased to be back at JAX London in 2017 and I gave an updated version of my introductory blockchain talk, explaining what it is and what we might do with it (with a sprinkling of my cynical view of what reality might look like).

  4. ECSA 2017

    October 27, 2018

    I continually try to bridge the gap between academic researchers and industry and as a small step in this direction, I attended the European Conference on Software Architecture and presented a paper titled “A Model for Prioritization of Software Architecture Effort” describing how I investigated how practicing architects focused their attention. As well as the…

  5. Blockchain as an Architectural Element

    September 21, 2017

    Blockchain is an intriguing new technology that builds upon well understood technologies to create a genuinely novel option for distributed data storage and processing. Crypto-currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin are the best known applications of blockchain technology, but its impact seems likely to extend well beyond this rather narrow area. A blockchain is a…

  6. SPA 2017

    June 28, 2017

    I was quite involved in SPA2017, helping with the organisation, as well as co-presenting two very interactive sessions and thoroughly enjoyed the event and learned a lot from the people who attended the sessions and from the other excellent sessions I attended. The sessions were on blockchain (with Nick Rozanski) and serverless computing (with Andy…

  7. O’Reilly Software Architecture London

    June 28, 2017

    O’Reilly brought their software architecture conference to London for the first time and I was lucky enough to get to present two sessions, one on architecture principles and one, with Simon Brown, on effective modelling for software architecture.

  8. GOTO London 2016

    June 28, 2017

    The team at Trifork organised a very nice event in October called GOTO London, a continuation and extension of the established GOTO conference series. I was lucky enough to be able to give two talks, a forward looking talk on how system architecture is changing, and a variant of my security principles talk.

  9. JAX London 2016

    June 28, 2017

    It was great to be back at JAX London again and I gave a talk on security principles for developers and also co-presented a talk on the “Naked Objects” framework Apache Isis with Dan Haywood, which was great fun. The slides here are the ones for the security design principles talk.

  10. SPA2016

    June 28, 2017

    I was back at SPA again in June 2016, for another engaging three days where I learned a lot more than I imparted! Still I was involved in a sessions, with Nick Rozanski, on Big Data from a “real world” perspective.
