-- Software architecture for developers --
Successful software projects aren’t just about good code. Sometimes you need to step away from the IDE for a few moments to see the bigger picture. Simon Brown offers an overview of software architecture on modern software projects that’s pragmatic rather than academic and lightweight rather than “enterprisey.”

The Agile and software craftsmanship movements are helping to improve the quality of the software systems that we build and help us deliver better software within typical time and budgetary constraints. But there’s more we can do, because even a small amount of software architecture can help prevent many of the problems that projects still face—particularly if the team seems to be more chaotic than they are self-organizing.
