Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
It's long overdo, but we're kicking off a project for v2 of the patterns & practices Application Architecture Guide. You might be familiar with Tom Hollander's post "Application Architecture for .NET" 2 - The Revenge. Well, now it's time for results.
Solution Architects / Dev Leads / DevelopersOur primary audience is solution architects, developer leads, and developers.
Principles, Patterns, and PracticesI'm a principles, patterns, and practices kind of a guy, so expect the guide to be principle-based, durable, and evolvable.
CodePlex Community Site It's a work in progress and it's early, but you can follow along here:
TopicsHere's some of the areas we're looking at for the guide:
Your FeedbackWhat would you like to see in the guide?
I ran across an interesting post on J.D. Meier's Blog that describes the Patterns & Practices project
A new friend I got, J.D. Meier , is leading a project intended to provide renewed Architecture Guidance
Im Jahr 2002 hat die " Patterns & Pratices " Gruppe einen Design-Guide für verteilte
JD, this all looks good, but following up on Adwait's comment - I'm hoping some guidance around Oslo and the new repository will be in the offing as soon as possible after the PDC. I know doing a real credible and comprehensive job on that front is probably way out on P&P's radar, but it would be good if P&P or the Oslo/Cloud groups could put out some preliminary guidance just so we all have our heads screwed on right coming out of the gate.
Also, I'd love to see a similar guidance package come out of the ALT.NET community - not so much by any particular luminary, but rather some form of consensus document putting some architectural context and scenarios around DDD, TDD, and SOLID.
Its really a great work! Thanks for bringing this out to us.
How about adding a few topics about SOA and Agile model?
@J Healy - I agree that having at least a frame and path would be helpful ... and pave the way for deeper guidance downstream.
@Santhosh - SOA makes sense. We're mostly focused on "structure" vs. "process" but it could make sense to call some key forces and responses, at least in terms of trends.
Do you have an approximate date of when the guide will be published?
@L Spidell - Yes - Jan 15, obviously subject to change. We'll ship modules incrementally though on CodePlex so you'll get to follow along. So far, we've been shipping on Wednesdays.
I am really looking forward to reading this once it comes out. I've got a software architecture blog and can't wait to incorporate some new ideas into it. I got a chance to write an article for the Patterns & Practices group at Microsoft and it was a great experience.
