"The Golden Age of Software Architecture" Revisited
July/August 2009 (vol. 26 no. 4)
pp. 70-72
Paul Clements, Carnegie Mellon University
Mary Shaw, Carnegie Mellon University
In "The Golden Age of Software Architecture" Paul Clements and Mary Shaw reviewed the emergence of software architecture as the principled understanding of the large-scale structures of software systems. Here they reflect on progress since that article, updating the state of practice and reassessing some of the opportunities.
