Release It! - Review of Book and Architecture Patterns (Robert Hurlbut)
The book Release It!: Design and Deploy Production-Ready Software by Michael Nygard was released as a 2nd edition this year January, 2018. When it was first released in 2007, I found it to be one of the best books on software architecture I had seen. It is still a great resource, but has been updated for architecture in the current DevOps era. In this session, I will review the book as well as talk about some of the software architecture patterns presented in the book. It is not required, but it would be great if you have a chance to read the book before the meeting to get your take on it (again, not required, but nice to have). Here is a link to the book on Amazon: Bio: Robert Hurlbut founded and has led the Boston .NET Architecture Group since December, 2004. Read more here: Venue and Food We meet at Magenic (see address above) at 6-8 pm. As usual, there will be pizza and sodas provided. Please RSVP through this site if you will be attending.
