Foundations Friday Forum

Mark Richards and Neal Ford, the authors of Fundamentals of Software Architecture and Software Architecture The Hard Parts, often answer questions and generally network with other architects at in-person events, which are sadly on hold at the moment. Thus, to provide another benefit to the existing and growing software architecture community, we’re hosting Foundations Fridays Forum, a free 30 minute topic-based question and answer session twice a month, with each forum focused on one of our books. We set the topic based on the book; you come armed with questions. Note that these forums are not recorded. Keep an eye on this space for upcoming dates and topics. Seating is limited, so register early and sign in early to ensure a seat.

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.

Topic: Architectural Coupling

In our recently published book Software Architecture: The Hard Parts we begin the book by discussing architectural coupling. In this forum we will be discussing coupling within architecture and more details about what is known as an architecture quantum, and answer your questions from chapter 2 of our new book.
