“Good enough” architecture

Stefan Tilkov takes a look at some of the ways you can determine whether the development efforts you’re undertaking suffer from too much or too little focus on architecture. You’ll examine a number of real-world examples that are intended to inspire either admiration or terror and try to find some recipes of how you can get more of the former and less of the latter in your own projects.

Stefan discusses some of the reasons architects and architectures fail, whether it’s because you’ve wasted too much time on planning and not enough on validating your theories or because of the absence of a dedicated architect or architect role and the premature start of the development before setting down some fundamental vision and ground rules led to disaster. You’ll look at examples for both options and hear anecdotes, with names and details changed to protect the sometimes not completely innocent, and try to extract descriptions of some common positive and negative influences. The goal isn’t to come up with a perfect recipe, but rather with some approaches Stefan has seen actually work in practice.
