Topic: What is an Architectural Quantum?
The idea of an architecture quantum first appeared in the Building Evolutionary Architectures book as a way to evaluate the evolvability of architectures. In Fundamentals of Software Architecture, we extended the concept to make it into an analysis tool. Now, in Architecture: The Hard Parts, we have refined the definition to separate two complected concepts in software architecture: how things are wired together and how they call each other. Join us for a highlight of the new direction we're taking this metric.
