Welcome to the first podcast dedicated solely to the practice of software architecture! In the episodes to come, we’ll discuss modern software architecture patterns and practices with the practitioners getting their hands dirty doing the work.

Episode 3 - Mark Richards on the Evolution of Software Architecture
My guest today is my good friend Mark Richards. Mark is an independent hands-on software architect, with 20 of his 30 years of experience in the industry playing some type of architecture role on a myriad of different software projects. He is the author of several books including Java Message Service, 2nd Edition, and is featured in the book 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know. In addition to that he is a frequent speaker on the conference circuit (which is how we met), and gives various extremely popular software architecture trainings around the world.
In this episode we discuss his keynote from the O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference in London, which took place in October 2016.
Episode 2 - Tudor Girba on Solving Problems Without Reading Code
My guest for this episode is Tudor Girba. Tudor builds tools and techniques for improving the productivity and happiness of software teams. He currently acts as a software environmentalist at feenk gmbh, a coaching and consulting company that he co-founded.
In 2014 he received the Dahl-Nygaard Junior Award for his work on modeling and visualization of evolution and interplay of large numbers of objects.
He leads the work on the Moose platform for software and data analysis, he initiated the work on the Glamorous Toolkit project for reinventing the software development environments, and he is a board member of the Pharo programming language and environment. He also authored the humane assessment method for making software engineering decisions, and the demo-driven approach to embedding design thinking in software development.
My guest for this show is Tim Berglund, Vice President of Developer Education at DataStax. We start by discussing the unique challenges of distributed systems for architects, eventually landing on the most important piece of distributed systems advice a software architect can receive. We then dive into types of distributed systems and how to build up one's skill set in this important area.
