Long Life Software

Civil engineers build structures to last. Aerospace engineers build airplanes for the long-haul. Automotive engineers build cars to last. How about software engineers?

Not all of software needs to be engineered for long-life, but in some systems the predicted market span dictates we plan for the future. How can we do this, given the uncertainties in the technology industry? What can we learn from the past? How can we take informed bets on technologies and plan for change? This session will cover some of the important considerations to make when thinking about the long term.

Tuesday (November 19th) - 11:00 - 11:45 on Embedded, Agile / PC
