Building Evolvable Architectures

Speaker: Dr. Rebecca Parsons, CTO of ThoughtWorks

The software development ecosystem exists in a state of dynamic equilibrium, where any new tool, framework, or technique leads to disruption and the establishment of a new equilibrium. Predictability is impossible when the foundation architects plan against is constantly changing in unexpected ways. It’s no surprise many CIOs and CTOs are struggling to adapt, in part because their architecture isn’t equipped to evolve.

Don't put data science notebooks into production

Martin Fowler

We've come across many clients who are interested in taking the computational notebooks developed by their data scientists, and putting them directly into the codebase of production applications. My colleague David Johnston points out that while data science ideas do need to move out of notebooks and into production, trying to deploy that notebooks as a code artifact breaks a multitude of good software practices. Predictably, that results in a number of observed pain points.
