Developing your career as a technical architect

IT teams today have many different types of architect, yet their technical skills are just the foundation for a range of soft skills that if they didn’t have wouldn’t earn them the title of architect. The session will help you understand the type of architect you are or want to become, and how to develop your career further in that area.  It will define the leadership, and design and implementation skills you’re likely to need; and review some of the methodologies you could use to help you become a more successful architect. While the subject is a generic professional discipline, the session is aimed at people with SQL Server DBA or development backgrounds, and uses the requirements of the Microsoft Certified Architect certification as its foundation.
