Application Architecture Guide 2.0Posted in Course, Software Architecture by Branislav Abadjimarinov on 1/25/2010 8:36:00 AM - CST
In codeplex I found a very interesting book part of Microsoft Patterns and Practices. The book is Application Architecture Guide 2.0 - http://www.codeplex.com/AppArchGuide . It covers various topics from application architecture field in Microsoft and in general. The book is a must read for Microsoft application architects, developers and even IT. It will help you understand a lot of the terminology and the ideas behind the application design. The chapters are short, informative and very well written. The book is one of the few good readings I've found about Architectural design patterns. The lack of information in this area is one of the reasons for so much badly designed code in applications. I think also that it will be awesome if we can create a university course for Application Architecture based on this book and other resources.
