    Unlikely Source on Architecture

    • 1 Comments
    I just finished reading this great book on architecture. It talks about governance, optimizing ROI, the importance of precision measurements, the opportunity found in inefficiency and how that inefficiency is often perpetuated by "conventional wisdom...

    Temporary New Home

    • 5 Comments
    Welcome to the temporary home of DevHawk. I'm guessing (hoping?) many of the people who read my blog regularly also monitor the MSDN blog feed and will notice that I am back online here. My friend who hosts DevHawk for me out of the kindness of his heart...
