The latest edition of Bill Venners’s Artima Developer Newsletter has an article entitled Software Architecture is Leadership. The premise of this article is that a software architecture should not only explain how things are done in a software project, it should guide the team in that direction. Very interesting read, like everything Bill writes. If you don’t subscribe to Bill’s newsletter, you should do that.
