The quality bar that separates good and bad architects became much clearer in the last 5 years as industry matured in definition of IT Architect profession expectations, validation criteria and education guidelines. In contrast with engineering, failures of poor architecture decisions are not immediately visible and they rarely cause imminent failure – yet they are still signs of bad architect. In this session we will explore what are the skills, experiences and expected knowledge when hiring/assessing/promoting an architect and what to do when someone doesn't meet expected (or self-advertised) quality bar.

      So disappointing. I'm expecting to watch the recording of DPR202, but what I got is DPR207. :(
      And I can't find DPR202 anywhere, because MS now only record 2 most popular presentations for each track. And guessing from the title, I believe the popular presentation is supposed to be DPR202. If there's a schedule change, the recording should be changed too, isn't it? Can I now please have the recording for DPR202? Thanks.
