Wanted: Sydneysiders to help solve the "how much architecture?" paradox.
I'm being let out of the office, and will be in Sydney for the week of 9 July 2012. If anyone in Sydney can spare an hour (at a time and place that suits you) and would like to participate in my research, drop me an email and I can fill you in with the details.
Basically, I'm looking for agile practitioners who have some exposure to architecture (whether they're team leads, architects, project managers, etc) and can talk about their experiences of designing architecture in agile development. I'm particularly interested in hearing from teams building large systems, teams in large organisations, start-ups and teams building mass market apps. (Though I'm still getting data from other types of development as well, such as outsourced standalone systems!)
In return I'll let you in on the findings from my research.
Note: I'm also interested in hearing from anyone in Wellington or Auckland who'd like to participate.
