Microsoft Architect's Journal

MSDN has now launched an online Microsoft Architect's Journal magazine.

Software architecture is a tough thing - a vast, interesting and largely unexplored subject area. As an art, it requires intuition and understanding of well-established architectural disciplines. As an engineering practice, it leads to formation of system models consisting of parts; with descriptions of their shape and form in terms of properties, relationships, and constraints. The rationale for their existence often derives from the system requirements. And of course, everyone has or wants to say something about it!

The richness of this topic is one of the reasons we have launched JOURNAL. It will be a platform for thought leadership on a wide range of subjects on enterprise application architecture, design and development. Authors will discuss various business and 'soft' concerns that play a key role in enterprise systems development. It will provide a unique source of information previously not available through any other Microsoft offering.

Topics in the most recent issue include:

  • Metropolis - A metaphor for the evolution of information technology into the world of service-oriented architectures
  • Service Orientated Architecture - Considerations for Agile Systems
  • Service Orientated Architecture Implementation Challenges
  • Business Patterns for Software Engineering Use - Part 1
  • Messaging Patterns in Service Oriented Architecture - Part 1
