November 15, 2017, 6PM: A Feature Based approach to Software Development – Ryan Lanciaux

Creating a solid architecture for any system we design can be a challenging process. The frameworks we use have often include some opinion about how our software should be designed but these guidelines may not always be the best for the long-term health of our application. How can we build our applications to ensure they are both maintainable and extensible in the future?

In this talk, we’ll discuss how taking a feature based approach to our application architecture can help us clearly structure applications that scale well over time. Additionally, we will talk about how we can apply these concepts to both the front-end and back-end to promote a consistent mindset across the entire tech stack. All examples will be using .NET Core and React but the concepts apply well beyond these technologies.
