Listen to ACM ByteCast!

ACM's Practitioner Board has created ACM ByteCast, a new podcast series in which hosts Rashmi Mohan, Jessica Bell, and Scott Hanselman interview researchers, practitioners, and innovators who are at the intersection of computing research and practice. In each monthly episode, guests will share their experiences, the lessons they’ve learned, and their own visions for the future of computing.

Listen to the latest episode featuring David Heinemeier Hansson, cofounder and CTO of Basecamp. In addition to his work on this popular project management application, he is also the creator of the open-source web framework Ruby on Rails, used by some of the best-known technology companies, such as Twitter, Shopify, GitHub, Airbnb, and Square, and more than a million other web applications. He is also a prolific author of multiple bestselling books on building and running a successful business, as well as a Le Mans class-winning racecar driver.

Learning Path: Software Architecture Fundamentals—Evolutionary Architecture

In this learning path, the sixth and final in our series on software architecture fundamentals, hosts Neal Ford and Mark Richards introduce the principles of evolutionary architecture—an architectural paradigm that supports constant change. Designed for the intermediate-level software architect or developer tasked with migrating to or implementing a new cloud-based or distributed-system architecture, this learning path equips you with the knowledge and tools you'll need to put evolutionary architecture into practice. You’ll explore some common antipatterns that you need to avoid. You’ll even look at methods to help you better explain the benefits of evolutionary architecture that can make it easier for you to interact with nontechnical team members and stakeholders.

Discover the Latest "Selects," Shortlists of Learning Resources Curated by Experts

ACM Selects are themed shortlists curated by subject matter experts for both serious and emerging computing professionals, with the goal of providing new ways to discover relevant resources, either through ACM or authenticated by ACM-affiliated specialists. The latest Selects cover People in Computing #7: Women in Hardware and Programming Languages and Spotlight on Computing in Bangladesh.

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.

ACM Distinguished Speakers Program

The Distinguished Speakers Program (DSP) is one of ACM's most valued outreach programs, providing universities, corporations, event and conference planners, and local ACM chapters with direct access to top technology leaders and innovators from nearly every sector of the computing industry. ACM will cover the cost of transportation for the speaker to travel to your event.
