97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know

97 Things Every Software Architect Should KnowRecently I have been reading in 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know. It is filled with 97 little nuggets of wisdom that you as a software architect should know. Each piece is described in a pleasant two-page format which helps to keep the information concise and easily congestible.

Take for example There Is No One-Size-Fits-All Solution. In it Randy Stafford describes that you as a Software Architects should strive to know the contextual sense in which you work. When you do this, the solutions you pick will be better.

Maybe less obvious are You’re Negotiating More Often Than You Think by Michal Nygard or Chances Are, You Biggest Problem Isn’t Technical by Mark Ramm which both really drive the point home that our industry is as much about people as it is about computers. While the point Udi Dahan makes in Stand Up! just makes you think about your non verbal communication.

This book is a pleasant read with a lot of useful little tidbits. Consider picking it up the next time you’re in the bookstore.
