97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know
97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know isn’t really a book… it’s pretty much a collection of bits of wisdom and advice from a bunch of leading software architects. There are no chapters, there is no unifying theme, there is no structure whatsoever. There is just a lot of great content. Around 50 software architects contributed 97 pieces to the book, each one filling up about 2 (small) pages. In a way, reading these pieces feels like reading great blog posts, though without the usual blogodrama. It’s great stuff for when you want to spend an hour reading, or for when you have a couple of minutes to spare.
