Good architecture frees us to choose the right tools and techniques, allowing us to adapt easily and concentrate on solving real problems rather than our made up ones. In this talk we will run through some stereotypical projects looking at the properties of good architectures and how these play into our ability to adopt better tools like Scala and FP. We will attempt to ground the magical architecture ponies, with real examples of my past projects where things have gone well and probably of more interest where they really have not.
I presented this talk at the Scala Sydney user group.
