Agile Software Architecture

Designing architecture iteratively, keeping it simple and valuable

About the Book

This book is still being written. The topics in the table of content will probably change over time. Also, I'm writing following a slicing strategy: instead of writing whole chapters or sections, I'm constantly adding text everywhere, trying to cover a wider range first, then going deeper in each topic, in an organic fashion. I can't guarantee the results, but I'm having fun!

Please feel free to provide feedback to me as you want. The easier way to contact me is via Twitter at @MartinSalias.

And don't forget to visit us at Kleer!

Thanks for reading!
