Welcome back to our weekly issue!
This week we have in our spotlight an extremely detailed post from Dropbox Tech describing how they have implemented their own asynchronous task framework.
A few days ago I bumped into this article about hexagonal architecture and I thought it was well written especially for who is approaching this architecture for the first time.
A key skill for any architect is understanding the context they operate in for providing the right architectural trade-offs. Understanding the company business model is key for providing the strategy for creating a successful architecture inside an organization, Nick provides a great post about it.
A few weeks ago I attended QCon Plus and the journey Netflix did on the APIs layer was extremely fascinating. Luckily it was one of the first videos released publicly so I thought you can find some ideas and insights watching it.
Finally, dealing with architecture migrations is hard, and learning from people who have done it may help you to avoid common pitfalls and provide a better idea of what challenges you are going to face.
Enjoy the read and see you next week!
