Dear Architect,

Welcome back to our weekly issue!

This week, in the spotlight we have a great discussion on the future of the web on one of my favourite podcasts: ModernCTO! The main guest is Sir Tim Berners-Lee shares his vision on how to make data really personal in this world of social networks.

I found this case study on Service Mesh very interesting because not many companies are shared their journey and running a Service Mesh for a couple of years can provide valuable insights for others just approaching the topic.

After the success of last week newsletter, I decided to add an additional article on the socio technical aspect of architecture and infrastructure. Every decision we take in our software has a direct connection with the organization structure and communication flow.

Domain-Driven Design vs Demo Driven Development, an opinionated article on why often we fail to deliver software projects.

Finally, the new edition of Building Microservices, one of the best book on the topic is having a revamp and these days Sam Newman just announced the book is ready for prime time, I cannot wait to have my hands on that book.

Enjoy the read and see you next week!

Sir Tim Berners-Lee & John Bruce - Creating a New Web For All

We discuss how Inrupt is building a new layer on the Web called Solid.
How Solid’s unique API significantly reduces the need for back-end development, and how Solid gives users control over their personal data.

Domain-Driven Design


After more than 20 years working in IT, the “Start coding from day one”, to me, is the biggest mistake one can make in a Software Development project. According to Domain-Driven Design principles, the developer's understanding of the domain gets distilled into code

Building Microservices - 2nd Edition

Distributed systems have become more fine-grained as organizations shift from code-heavy monolithic applications to smaller, self-contained microservices. But developing these systems brings its own set of problems. With lots of examples and practical advice, this expanded second edition takes a holistic view of the topics system architects and administrators must consider when building, managing, and evolving microservices architectures.
