Fundamentals of Software Architecture

This Foundations Friday Forum will involve topics selected from our book "Fundamentals of Software Architecture"


Topic: Architectural Thinking

In chapter 2 of our book we introduce what is known as architectural thinking - seeing things with an “architect's eye”. In other words, seeing things from an architecture point of view. In this forum we will answer your questions regarding things like architecture vs. design, what is architecture, what it means to “think architecturally”, and how to link business drivers to architecture concerns.
