Developers come to a cross roads at a certain point in their career. Do you stay as a developer, move towards management, consultancy, or maybe architecture? I chose the path of the architect, and my talk will be a story of my journey. I'll also delve into the different types of architect, and what the main differences are between an architect and a developer.

Interesting talk.

Good clear slides.

This one had a bit of a slow pace and I think could've done with a little more detail. Perhaps an example of a project and how a developer might approach the problem vs how an architect approaches the problem, and the shifts you needed to make in your own thinking to switch from one to the other.

Would be great to have some more slides with some of the key points you were discussing too. It's hard to get that balance between death by thousand slides and not enough slides. I think in your case you could probably add a few more.

That being said, it was really interesting to hear a little about your personal journey! It's a difficult part of the developers career when you feel like you're stagnating and trying to decide which way to go next. It's great to share an option that people might not automatically think about.
