Dear Architect,

Welcome back to our weekly issue!

This week we have in our spotlight a fantastic article on team topologies and how DDD helps to solve social-technical challenges highlighting the relation between architecture and organization structure.

If you are interested in why Mux chooses Kubernetes over Serverless this podcast episode is for you. A case study where the guest shares the reasoning of their decisions explaining the challenges faced by his company and why Kubernetes fit better their needs.

Considering the great success of books recommendation in the XMas newsletter, I decided to share more of them in the next issues. This time it's the turn of Cloud Strategy, a book useful for every company that wants to migrate to the cloud.

Soft skills, or core skills as we should call them right now, are crucial for everyone, but for architects even more. This talk about cognitive bias may open your eyes and provide new tools for collaborating with developers, stakeholders, or peers.

Finally, interesting research that collects several serverless patterns proposed by practitioners on technical talks, blogs, and whitepapers.

Enjoy the read and see you next week!


Domain-Driven Design

Architecture Ownership Patterns for Team Topologies

The systems we build are composed of many pieces. From mobile apps, to domains, to user journeys. How should we slice up the system and divide responsibilities among teams in our organisation?

Kubernetes vs. Serverless with Matt Ward

The user experience for Kubernetes is great, but is still not as simple as a full-on serverless implementation–at least, that has been a long-held assumption. Why would you manage your own infrastructure, even if it is Kubernetes? Why not use autoscaling Lambda functions and other infrastructure-as-a-service products?


Cloud Strategy

Surely you're going to the cloud or are already part-way there. But do you have a clear strategy, one that makes meaningful decisions, those that imply conscious trade-offs?
How do you connect business outcomes with technology choices that involve several hundred available services and endless configuration options?

Software Architecture

How cognitive bias and ranking can foster an ineffective architecture and design

The power of collaborative modeling comes from having a diverse group of people who, together, have a lot of wisdom and knowledge. You would expect that all this knowledge will be put to use, co-creating, and to design a model. In reality, we don’t actually listen to all the available input and perspectives due to cognitive biases and ranking

Serverless Patterns

In our recent scientific publication, we collected the serverless patterns proposed by practitioners on technical talks, blogs, and whitepapers. The goal is to support practitioners in understanding the different patterns, by classifying them and reporting possible benefits and issues.
Thanks for reading Dear Architects 🙏

If you have any suggestions to make this newsletter better, just drop us an email!

Have a great rest of the week 😉

We just need a few minutes of your time to make Dear Architects even better
Sure! Let me share what I think about Dear Architects!
