Code is King! Role of a Software Architect

I was looking for something else and stumbled upon this post from Joe where he lists the qualities that makes up a “good architect” (despite the feelings that have been expressed to me in the past). I have to agree with him and am quite pleased to see that a “typical” Avanade architect would fit the bill. Smile

  • Inspire and empower people to do their best work.
  • Oversight, but not dictatorship.
  • Taste is a hard thing to measure, but is invaluable.
  • Write code and get your hands dirty.
  • The power of the dyad: know your weaknesses.
  • It's for the customer, not you.
  • Admit when you're wrong, fall on your sword, and then fix it.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
