Representing your architecture as code, microservice mistakes and getting shit done.
Why architects should debug issues, ‘cleaning’ up your architecture and testing event driven systems.
Thinking; something you spend an awful lot of time doing. Whether that be about what you’re working on now, something new you need to build in the future or a particularly gnarly issue, you can’t get your head round. So surely, having a set of tools you can use to aid your thinking is useful? Right? One of my favourite frameworks for thinking about problems is using First Principles.
My weekly newsletter from 2023-09-06. In this weeks issue, you will learn about how to ride the architects elevator, the importance of modularizing your software and what Netflix learnt from building microservices.
