This week I received some hard-copies of the July/August issue of the IEEE Software magazine. This issue contains an article called
A Lightweight Sanity Check for Implemented Architectures
which is written by Arie van Deursen and yours truly.
The article looks really great, it has multiple colours, pull-quotes, a side-bar and pictures! And although good looks are sometimes deceiving, this article also contains some pretty interesting content (if I do say so myself).
As expected, it describes a check-list which can be used to get a quick overview of the state of the implemented architecture of a system. Such an overview helps in determining which parts of the architecture can be improved, or confirms that everything is in good shape. I believe that both outcomes are interesting, so I recommend everybody to give LiSCIA a try!
