Architectural Design in Practice

“This tutorial is aimed at people interested in practical architecture design. Some experience in designing software architectures (with or without a method) is desirable. The tutorial starts with a presentation of an extension to the ADD method that addresses the two problems previously discussed. This presentation is followed by an exercise in which participants will perform the design activities, combining a selection of tactics and patterns with a selection of frameworks. The exercise will put into practice the concepts discussed in the presentation. The tutorial concludes with a discussion in which we share experiences and identify ideas about how to address the two problems described above.”
