Open Source North Rides Again

We had another fun and exciting rendition of Open Source North in June earlier this year (2016). It’s a conference that eventually will be recognized as the premier technology event of the year in the Twin Cities. Well, that’s my prediction at least.

I had a great time and got to give my presentation/group discussion on the state of Architecture in the Midwest and how the practice needs to be redefined. Architecture means nothing these days, Enterprise Architect in it’s traditional form is dying, and Engineers are taking over the space once occupied by Architects. Why have an architect if you can have an engineer do the same job and deliver the working software as well?

Hope to see you again next year!
