Constructive criticality: the intersection of residuality theory and business strategy - Discussion with Barry O’Reilly

May 17, 2024


The key to successful architecture isn’t the beautiful design with the perfect abstractions; it is more about knowing what can go wrong and where the fragile areas are. In this episode, Barry O’Reilly (Founder at Black Tulip Technology) shares his experience as an architect with Kristof Van Tomme and points out how residuality theory can help us better understand our industry. 

They discuss topics like the three problems with software architecture, how residuality theory deals with these struggles, and how business strategy is a similar area. In their discussion, they also touch upon the field of LLMs.
