  1. GSAS 2019

    December 11, 2019

    The first Global Architecture Summit was a great success, attracting a large number of people from across Europe and beyond. I participated in a number of panels on how to measure the effectiveness of architectural practices and the future of software architecture as a discipline and an activity. Great event to be part of. Looking…

  2. JAX London 2019

    December 11, 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. 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.

  4. ICSA 2019

    March 29, 2019

    I was honoured to be asked to give one of the keynote talks at the International Conference on Software Architecture in Hamburg. I gave a talk entitled “Democratising Software Architecture” on how I see architecture work evolving to be less about an architect and more about something that an entire team undertakes together.  Since then,…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. JAX London 2017

    October 11, 2017

    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).

  9. Upcoming Events

    I’m very pleased to have been selected to present sessions at SPA2017, GOTO CPH, JAX London and O’Reilly Software Architect London during the year. I hope to meet lots of great new people at the events, so if you’re going, please do come and say hello if possible.

  10. 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…
