GSAS 2023: Highlights
The summit showcased a stellar lineup of speakers such as Mark Richards, Eoin Woods, Neal Ford, Nathaniel Schutta, Ben Evans, Jacqui Read, Daniel Selans, Nick Tune, Diana Montalion, Amal Tahri, Sonya Natanzon, Vlad Khononov, Andrea Magnorsky, Niklas Gustavsson, and Pratik Patel. Speakers focused on bringing forward essential practices, innovation, working software, and practical solutions. Attendees were treated to a wealth of knowledge, experiences, and insights that are crucial to staying at the forefront of the rapidly evolving software architecture landscape.
In Mark Richards’s view, “This is a chance to bring architects and developers together to be able to talk about software architecture. This is my third year speaking at the Global Software Architecture Summit, and I love seeing the energy—just the growth. The attendees are fantastic, as are the speakers. So far, it has been a fantastic experience“.
GSAS wasn’t just about technical talks and workshops; it was also about fostering a sense of community and fun. Attendees had the opportunity to connect with like-minded peers and engage in meaningful discussions. The summit provided an environment that encouraged networking and camaraderie, as well as some well-deserved relaxation. With snacks, beverages, and lively interactions, GSAS 2023 delivered on the promise of a holistic experience.
“This is a great event. Apiumhub has done a fantastic job pulling so many people together from so many places and so many great experts to learn from. It’s a unique resource in the software architecture world,” added Eoin Woods.
Another aspect to highlight is the diversity of participants who attended the event. This year, attendees came from 37 countries, including Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United States, Russia, Germany, Spain, and many more. One advantage of having attendees from all over the world is the opportunity for a diverse and rich exchange of ideas and experiences. When participants come from various countries, they bring with them different cultural perspectives, problem-solving approaches, and technological insights.
Neal Ford believes that “dedicated single-track conferences are around a very tight theme like software architecture, and this is no exception. A lot of really fantastic speakers, a lot of great insight, and a lot of quite varied talk. So it keeps it interesting as the day goes on to see the variety and breadth of software architecture on display”.
