  1. Hmm Iโ€™ve heard other respected developers pronounce the exact same thing.

    Architects definitely fulfill an important role in the process. To me a junior developer supports the senior developer. This spread a range of activities variating from getting coffee to realizing (sub)systems of the solution). The senior developer has a certain responsibility in the development process and advises the architect technology wise. The architect connects conceptual, logical views to physical views resulting in complete systems and infrastructure with support from stakeholders, analysts etc.

    I think the whole โ€œArchitect is a trendโ€ debate is a time waster. Looking forward to read Ingoโ€™s book ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I don’t care what title I have, as long as I get to do projects that challenge me. If they call me (junior) developer, I might get MS Access at me. When they think I’m an architect, I get to do the cool stuff on (larger) projects.

    I’m also (trying to) take on Service Orientated Architecture. The services were always there, but now they’re better defined, I guess. And more info is available on how to HST, or Hook Shit Together, as we heard monday evening! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I see a lot of problems with SOA that I can’t find the solutions for, yet. I hope the example apps for Shadowfax and Fabriq show solutions. Haven’t had the time to look at the Shadowfax example app yet, and Fabriq was just released.

    Anyway, I like doing things the SOA way. It’s still on certain points a lot different to what we were used to. It’s just like when .NET was released, a whole new way of programming (kind of) came to light. In some sort of way, I feel the same about SOA. And I like it. Also the discussions it brings forward with other developers why they can’t plugin their Crystal Reports directly onto the database, or can’t do this or that, like they were used to! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Although they (these discussions) can be very frustrating from time to time, I’ve noticed I get a lot of satisfaction from proving my point! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. If you donโ€™t own Integration Patterns (http://www.eaipatterns.com), yet Iโ€™d advise you to buy a copy.

  4. Because of? I’m kinda lost why you come up with this all of a sudden! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know it’s supposed to be a great book, and I already got EAP, but there’s so much to do and so little time. I’m doing DDD currently, although I’m into Star Wars Galaxies at the moment. 14 day trial and I want to use every minute of it. Too bad I also have to work, take care of my kids, give my wife some attention and have to sleep even! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Because of "I’m also (trying to) take on Service Orientated Architecture". Integration Patterns give you a head start.

    I’m waiting for HL2 and its mods ๐Ÿ˜€
