“We value working software over comprehensive documentation.”—_The Agile Manifesto_
This precept has typically been misinterpreted as “don’t write documentation,” although “no documentation” is clearly not what the manifesto says and certainly wasn’t the intent. However, this misinterpretation reflects the fact that it seems like many software teams have lost the ability to communicate what it is they are building. It’s no surprise then that these same teams often lack technical leadership, direction, and consistency. Simon Brown shares approaches and tools for visualizing, documenting, and exploring your software architecture.
Simon Brown is an independent consultant specializing in software architecture. Simon is the author of Software Architecture for Developers, a developer-friendly guide to software architecture, technical leadership, and the balance with agility. He is also the creator of the C4 software architecture model.
