Welcome back to our weekly issue!
This is a very special issue, the newsletter is ONE YEAR OLD 🎉!
52 issues with 5 articles per week are 260 pills of knowledge shared to all of you in a year. I really hope you are enjoying the format and quality of the content so far.
For this special week, we start with a brilliant article from Zio Brando on the link between team organization and technical implementation. It's great how concepts like team topologies and context mapping are pulled together in this article.
My colleague Gregor Hohpe, wrote about the role played by an architect and where the architecture design may seat inside teams.
Big reveal this week, with this early release of Software Architecture: the hard parts. Now, I'm a huge fan of the authors and I'm sure this will be my favourite book to read for the Xmas holiday. Distributed systems are difficult but they have really a ton of experience to share with us. For me, it's already a must-read book for 2022.
We continue with a case study from Shopify, dealing with high traffic is always a challenge, but sometimes eventual consistency comes into place for helping us to solve these problems.
Finally, I want to leave you with this special episode of CloudCast. During this episode, we take a step back to understand the role of the cloud and how it's evolving in the next decade. I really liked spending a bit of time after listening to this episode trying to see the cloud evolution with different eyes.
Enjoy the read and see you next week!
