Practical Software Architecture: Moving from System Context to Deployment

Author: Tilak Mitra
Publisher: IBM Press / Pearson
Pages: 304
ISBN: 978-0133763034

Is there a way to use software architecture techniques while taking a practical approach to development? This is a book that attempts to provide pragmatic suggestions and prescriptions that are practical enough to be executable, according to Alex Denham, who gave the book 4.5 stars.

Overall, Alex concluded that the book managed to keep to its practical remit for the majority of the time, and to introduce the concepts of software engineering clearly and with practical backup.

Enterprise Software Delivery

Author: Alan W Brown
Publisher: Addison-Wesley
Pages: 320
ISBN: 978-0321803016

This book claims to provide detailed, actionable techniques for building software supply chains, and while it is aimed at larger enterprises, Kay Ewbank awarded it four stars saying that the book contains some useful insights even if your software delivery problem is much more local.


Her conclusion was:

"On the whole, I found this book to be based on real life experience, and the author overall talks sense rather than management drivel. He doesn’t claim to have invented a sure-fire way to make impossible things possible, he just lays out what he’s found in his career. The target audience of the book is really CIOs, but it’s an interesting read for those of us at the coal face too."


Beautiful Architecture: Leading Thinkers Reveal the Hidden Beauty in Software Design

Author: Diomidis Spinellis & Georgios Gousios
Publisher: O'Reilly
Pages: 426
ISBN: 978-0596517984

Despite being an older title, this thought-provoking collection of essays still qualifies as I Programmer's most popular book review. This is part of a series of O'Reilly titles with "Beautiful" in their titles, that present essays from more than a dozen contributors to examine the more thoughtful aspects of programming.


Mike James awarded it four stars, saying that overall the quality of the contributions is high, but very, very over length. Most of the essays ramble at first before getting to the meat of their idea and then finish rapidly. The book could be much shorter and no less interesting with some creative and effective editing.
