DevConf.CZ 2022 - Talking Architecture Shop with Anyone (slides) I mentioned previously that I had a talk accepted for  DevConf.CZ 2022 with a focus on the architecture work I've been doing lately. 


It's a free, Red Hat sponsored technology conference for community project and professional contributors to Free and Open Source technologies coming to a web browser near you!

There is no admission or ticket charge for the DevConf.CZ event. Talks, presentations and workshops will all be in English and recorded for post event viewing.

The following session was presented today, so let's share the slides with you.

For completeness here is the abstract for the talk.

Talking Architecture Shop with Anyone

point of sale
We've all had the retail shopping experience, either online or in a physical shop, but have you ever wanted to take a serious look at how they deliver that experience in a cost effective manner at scale? This session takes attendees on a tour of three architecture blueprints covering three of the most interesting solutions retail organisations have to implement successfully to survive. Not only are these architecture solutions interesting, but they are based on successful real life implementations featuring open source technologies and power a lot of your world wide shopping experiences. The following three use cases will be discussed and detailed in architectural diagrams showcasing how open technologies are integrated to solve them:

  • Supply chain integration
  • Real-time stock control
  • Point of sale

The attendee shall depart this session with a working knowledge of how to map general open source technologies to their solutions with examples all based on real life use cases. Material covered is available freely online and attendees can use these solutions as starting points for aligning to their own solution spaces as they can be pre-loaded into our architecture diagram tooling for modification.  Furthermore, content is available online for each of these use cases providing attendees with reference material post conference.
