Overview

Many books present architectures, but few ever talk about how they came to be. This book will address the question of what are the ingredients of a robust, elegant, flexible, maintainable architecture? Beautiful Architecture will let readers eavesdrop on some of the best minds in software engineering today. In each chapter, a well-known software engineer will present one of his or her favorite pieces of architecture, then explain what makes that architecture particularly elegant, robust, clever, and fit for its purpose—in other words, beautiful. In Beautiful Architecture, thirty master architects think aloud as they work through their project's architecture, outlining the decisions made and the tradeoffs encountered. Instead of simply providing the answer in the form of presenting architecture, this book takes a look behind the scenes - by sharing the decisions behind the architecture.
