New software technology appears every year. Like clockwork, another language, library, pattern, or approach will arrive on the scene with plenty of hype and developer enthusiasm. As someone whose job requires making architectural decisions, you need to evaluate these new technologies with an eye toward the inevitable tradeoffs before deciding if a new framework or language ...more

A decent brochure (short to read). I have already heard a lot during his talk at Devoxx conference, but still worth reading. Very inspiring for aspirants on the architect role and/or eye-opener for developers.

Schutta doesn't worry too much about what an architect is...instead he digs into what an architect does. Or rather, into one particular aspect of the job, which is helping to lead technical change by evaluating and selecting technologies. He gets into the nuts and bolts of comparing code, but he also spends plenty of pages talking about politics and how to introduce change into an organization. Worth a read, especially if your company is infected with either bandwagon fever or rampant conservati ...more

عادة، تناقش كتب معمارية البرمجيات (Software Architecture) مواضيع ثابتة، مثل ماهية المعمارية (Architecture)، وكيفية عمل التصميم المعماري (Architecting)، ومواصفات ومهارات وأدوات المعماري (Architect) والمتوقع منه، ومواضيع أخرى متفرعة عن الثلاثة مواضيع الرئيسية هذه. لكن توجد بعض الكتب التي تناقش موضوعا واحدا فرعيا بعمق أكبر، ومن هذه النوعية: الكتاب الذي بين أيدينا اليوم، كتاب "التفكير المعماري Thinking Architecturally"، لمؤلفه "ناثانيال شوتا (Nathaniel Schutta)"، الذي يناقش كيف يتعامل المعماري مع ال ...more

O livro retrata muito bem como é a jornada de mudança de tecnologia em uma empresa na visão de um arquiteto de software como também de um usuário de negócios. Apresentando algumas ferramentas para melhorar essa mudança tanto na área tecnológica quanto na pessoal como no gerenciamento da expectativas do time técnico e não-técnico. Recomendado para quem quer um livro pequeno e leve sobre alguns desafios de um arquiteto de software.

Shelves: programming, software
Good starting points on how to select technologies and introduce them properly into your product from architecture side (kind of decision framework).

Full of down-to-Earth practical advise for (present or future) software architects, but worth reading for most software developers too.

Many things that are told already many times are retold. Title is a bit misleading.

Schutta does a great job in presenting what a software architect does; and the opportunities, losses, hard-earned lessons (only via experience), X factors, and considerations to take. Instead of us having to spend a decade plus plus, he shared all of them by one shot here.

What I love about the book is that he explicitly recommends that *junior* roles read and get insights from this book. This recommendation should not be overlooked.

Being in a relatively senior role of my company, I totally app

An overview of architectural decisions, the politics and persuasion involved, and the needs to balance competing measures and attributes. A fairly easy read, but full of great suggestions, and, for many, reminders of how to handle being a senior developer or architect.

“Rich Hickey once said programmers know the benefits of everything and the tradeoffs of approach that can lead a project down a path of frustra‐ ted developers and unhappy customers. But as an architect you must consider the tradeoffs of every new library, language, pattern, or approach and quickly make decisions often with incomplete information.” 2 likes
“I thought I’d “missed the wave” of some technology or another. What I didn’t appreciate at the time is that new technologies are a lot like buses—one comes every 15 minutes or so. As architects, we have to remember that we cannot stop change, but we can manage it.” 1 likes
