Interested in participating but don't know how or where to get started? I often run
the Architectural Katas at software development conferences, but a few bold folks have
started running Architectural Kata User Groups; as I find out about them, I will try
to keep this page updated with those groups' contact information so you can link up with
Alternatively, you can try sending a message to the
Architectural Katas Google Group
and see if anybody there is hosting something nearby.
- Neudesic, LLC, my employer,
is exploring the idea of hosting some public Katas workshops as a way of reaching out
to the community in the regions in which we have offices.
Reach out to me if you would be
interested in seeing one done in your city.
- I am speaking on the VSLive!
conference circuit, doing the katas as a Friday post-con all-day workshop.
- For those of you in Europe, check out JAX,
which often has me do the Katas as an all-day workshop, as well. (Incidentally, I
don't know how long it'll be on the home page, but the video shots of the groups
chatting and so forth are from the Katas workshop I did there last year. The
video itself is, of course, up
on YouTube--everything up until the food shots is from the Architectural
Kata workshop, near as I can tell.)
Boston Architectural Katas Practioners group is the first group I know that
has self-organized around doing architectural katas on a monthly basis. Next time
I'm in Boston, I plan to try and catch one.
