The O’ Reilly Software Architecture Conference 2018 was held in New York City.  It was a week full of excellent lectures, hands-on opportunities, and all things architecture related.  We departed from our normal lecture series in the mentor class to take a closer look at what topics were prevalent this year.

Hot Topics Overview

Many of the latest technologies and platforms were covered.  These are not surprising to anyone that keeps up with technology news.  Nevertheless, there was a lot to be gained from stories of how these advances are used by the biggest players in the industry.  Presentations from Google, Netflix, and IBM often covered projects bigger than your needs while providing some examples to learn from anyway.

This video comes from our mentoring/mastermind classes.  These classes are virtual meetings that focus on how to improve our technical skills and build our businesses.  The goals of each member vary.  However, this diversity makes for great discussions and a ton of educational value every time we meet.  We hope you enjoy viewing this series as much as we enjoy creating it.  As always, this may not be all new to you, but we hope it helps you be a better developer.  Drop us a line to find out when the next one is so you can join our group.
