Make it a thing! – The practice of software architecture

What is “architecture”? What is it that “Architects Do”? Doesn’t “Agile” suggests that we don’t need architects, and the architecture just emerges? And what on earth is “Enterprise Architecture” Anyway?

Answers to these questions and more will be in this talk, including the question “Do I need to code to be an architect?
