Welcome to my blog. As a start I’ll revive my “five axioms of (IT) architecture” which I came up with a while ago now and which hopefully will have some relevance and usefulness to would be followers of this blog.

  1. Architecture should drive technology, not the other way round.
  2. All architecture is design but not all design is architecture. As blogged by Grady Booch here.
  3. The best architectures are full of patterns. Also stated by Grady Booch, though I’m not sure where.
  4. An architecture should not comprise a single ‘view’, good architectures have many views that satisfy the concerns of multiple stakeholders.
  5. An architecture should be as simple as possible, but no simpler. Paraphrased from Einstein.
