Welcome back to our weekly issue!
This week we have in our spotlight Sam Newman's presentation about the future of the cloud.
I personally love Sam's talks, he is smart, knowledgeable, opinionated but extremely pragmatic. I'd love to hear what you think about this talk, a real blast if you ask me.
The architect elevator is a great episode of the ThoughtWorks podcast, where Neal Ford interviews Gregor Hohpe about the duties of how a modern architect, many insights and emphasis on core skills every architect should have. If you love metaphors this is definitely an episode you will enjoy.
In the survey form, I received many requests for articles on design patterns, searching on the web I found this one with a nice overview of the most common one for a microservices architecture, in the following issues I'll try to find more detailed articles but this is a good starting point.
As you know by now, I love case studies, I found them extremely fascinating especially when they explain the problems they were trying to solve and the thought process to overcome a challenge. This is exactly what you will find in this article from Uber Engineering.
Finally, architecture is not only for the backend but on frontend applications too. In this series of articles, Wix explains how they enhanced the mobile architecture using a modular approach for scaling their software and organization.
Enjoy the read and see you next YEAR!
May this year bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements, and a lot of new inspirations to your life
