NDC returned to Sydney this year and SSW TV was there alongside .NET Rocks! to catch all of the action with our Ask Me Anything! sessions.
As usual there were a host of top industry pros talking about various subjects related to software development. This year, SSW TV worked alongside .NET Rocks! to run an entire track of live interviews with some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.
In this AMA, SSW’s Thiago Passos, interviews James Lewis, a keen member of the ThoughtWorks Technical Advisory Board, about how software architecture has evolved over time, and of his experiences with monolith, microservices, and cloud applications.
