Dave Thomas to deliver keynote address at SATURN 2011

Dave Thomas, CEO of Bedarra Research Labs and past CEO and president of Object Technology, Inc. (OTI), will speak at SATURN 2011 in a keynote address at 9:00 am on Thursday, May 19. The title of Thomas’s talk will be “The Intimate Relationship Between Architecture and Code: Architecture Experiences of a Playing Coach.”

In his talk, Thomas will explore why, with so many architects, we still have “so little true architecture, so much technical debt, and such large intractable legacies.” Thomas will assert that good software is “a marriage of architecture and code reflecting the team that designed and built it” and argue that architecture must be refined along with code by architects with “code on their hands.”

Here is the complete abstract for Thomas’s SATURN 2011 keynote address.
