Just enough software architecture- A Risk Driven Approach by George Fairbanks

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This practical guide seeks to make architecture relevant to all software developers. Developers need to understand how to use constraints as guiderails that ensure desired outcomes, and how seemingly small changes can affect a system's properties.

It's technology-agnostic & to some degree it's complementary to DDD concept as it doesn't try to introduce new patterns or sophisticated taxonomies, but focuses on composability, different levels of abstraction and a balance between parts that keep a proper internal cohesion. It's (the book) advertised as a "risk-based approach to architecture", but I'd just call it "need-based" or "pragmatism-based".The emphasis on parallelism between design model & "code" model - maybe some naming was unfortunate (I prefer one from Living Documentation, X-rays or DDD), but the concepts behind are the same. The chapter about encapsulation (no 11) is freaking epic - literally EVERY software engineer should read it at some point.But it doesn't change the fact that it's one of the most "defining" books when it comes to design, modeling & defining architecture.

This book is hardly available.  Book in Very Good condition no visible damage looks like new.
