How to learn architecture ? How to improve in this field ? How do we recognize a good or a bad architecture ?
There are plenty of books and training sessions about this subject. The best thing is to practice!
In the same way as coding dojos, I will present to you architecture katas. There are created by Ted Neward (http://blogs.tedneward.com/). His idea came from the following observation :
"So how are we supposed to get great architects, if they only get the chance to architect fewer than a half-dozen times in their career?"
One solution to this issue could be to practice regularly on several topics to gain experience.
After a brief introduction of how to start designing an architecture, I will present architecture katas, and the conduct.
To conclude, after this first try I will present the benefits I had benefited.
