SEI Architecture-Centric Engineering (ACE) Workshop for Educators

Tenth SEI Architecture-Centric Engineering (ACE) Workshop for Educators

The Tenth SEI Software Architecture Workshop for Educators was held at the Software Engineering Institute in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on August 5–7, 2013.

The first two days concentrated on two topics: the Architectural Implications of Cloud Computing and Economics-Driven Architecting.  A group session was conducted on the third day to brainstorm about using ideas that emerged from the topic discussions. SEI members facilitated and shared experiences, ideas, and tangible artifacts for introducing software architecture and product line topics into the college curriculum.

Through the Educators Workshop, the community of attendees continues to grow and to influence the direction of software engineering education. Participating educators enable hundreds of students annually to benefit from exposure to software architecture and product line concepts. Attendees describe how how they regularly incorporate new material from the workshop into their courses.

The Educators Workshop has created a network of collaboration both for research and for education. It presents a unique opportunity to interact with colleagues who have similar interests and to connect with the growing community who has attended other workshops.
