Vertical Software Architecture

Moving from a layered software architecture to a vertical slice architecture can be a bit daunting. We remove abstractions, complex structures, and focus building on the axis of change, then what’s next? What new structures, patterns, and policies will need to be introduced in this style of architecture? How will we deal with common business functionality, and where do concepts like CQRS and DDD fit in? This presentation introduces the idea of vertical slice software architectures, and dives into the patterns, tools, and techniques used with slices. It also covers how you can fit vertical slices into different kinds of systems, from desktop, SPA, and normal MVC applications. It presents at the end some of the challenges that come with slices and layers, and how a different approach provides a much more maintainable end result.
