Despite being several decades old, 'modern' techniques like Lean manufacturing . . .
Architectural Quality Factors Revisited... for CD
In an initial post on architectural quality factors, we describe the...

The goal of Continuous Delivery is for systems to be able to 'continuously demonstrate their state of production readiness' [ . . .
Molly Dishman and Martin Fowler
An interesting keynote from Molly Dishman and Martin Fowler, on the changing role of architecture.
- Diffusion of Architectural Responsibility
- We no longer need architects, technical leads are doing the architecture?
Q. How do we make sure that 'architecture' is still happening?
It is important to pay that continuous . . .
