Wellington Solution Architects Forum (WSAF)

A grass-roots community for anyone interested in digital or information technology related architecture.

Our aim is to foster professional development as well as help support the local architect community, predominatly on topics relevant to solution architects, aspiring architects and architecture in general.

We host semi-regular meet-ups in the Wellington CBD. If you have an idea for a meet-up, podcast, or a piece of news for the community visit the contact page.

Our online presence is something of a tangled web, to get a full picture of how you can engage online please see the about us page.

Published 16-Nov-2017 by Adrian K

Rather than have the regular TTTT meet-up on what would be Thursday the 22nd, we're instead going to do drinks at Cuckoo late afternoon.

Hopefully it'll be sunny - G&T's, hmmm...

Not sure when it will end, it's just a casual walk-in and have a natter kind of meet-up.

What are your experiences of Solutions Architecture in the Wellington context?

Published 24-Oct-2017 by Adrian K

Nitish Verma (LinkedIn profile) has posted a survey asking about experiences of Solutions Architecture in the Wellington context. We have run 'official' WSAF surveys like this in the past - it's always interesting to see what others are thinking.

From Nitish: Having worked with Govt agencies for about 20 years now, I have noticed significant shifts in both the style and scope of SA work and I thought a follow up discussion on the insights from the survey may be of interest to us all. Its an anonymous survey so privacy is assured! under 10 min. commitment... btw. not limited to govt agencies, please spread the word far and wide.
