Video: Intro to Software Architecture and the Risk-Centric Model
In case you were wondering what my book on software architecture will be like, you can now see the video that describes its basics. This talk was given at a joint session of the Denver IASA and the Agile Denver groups on 16 November 2009. The topic is the Risk-Centric Model of software architecture, which helps you answer the question, "How much architecture/design should I do?"
The first 17 minutes of the talk are a quick summary of software architecture; the remainder describes the Risk-Centric Model.
