The Frustrated Architect

An interesting set of slides by Simon Brown from a talk he gave about the role of the architect. A PDF is attached to the linked post or you can view the slides online. Wish I had heard the talk (see below).

The Frustrated Architect:

Software architecture plays a pivotal role in the delivery of successful software yet it’s frustratingly neglected by many teams. Whether performed by one person or shared amongst the team, the architecture role exists on even the most agile of teams yet the balance of up front and evolutionary thinking often reflects aspiration rather than reality.

Update – if you go to this page you can get a video of the presentation; it’s about an hour long. A word of warning: I couldn’t make the video play on the site with Chrome, I had to use Safari.
