Appendix to June 2, 2020 talk on Software architecture

June 2, 2020

On June 2, 2020, I was invited by the SEI to make a presentation. Slides are posted here.

A recording of the talk is here, but be aware of a possible gap around minute 34; just go “fast forward”.

You will find here pointers to various papers and books I referred to in the talk.

For  my own papers on Software architecture, see this other tab here.
