A Few Pithy Thoughts on Architecture

As a follow up on the previous post. There are few things I consider as important for software architects. I wouldn't go as far as to call them axioms but I still think they are worthwhile.

  • Think Hollistically
  • It is always a trade-off !
  • Pay attention to your soft skills
  • Get SPAMMED for architecture
I wrote a lot about the fourth one (see for instance this article in Dr. Dobb's). I'll expand a little about the others in the next few posts.
