Friday, October 31, 2008 A New Resource For Architects

Twitter is great. It allows a whole new level of networking that can lead to some great discoveries. For example, I followed a conversation over to Chris Woodford's Twitter page. For those who don't know Chris, he's part of the popular Deep Fried Bytes podcast series. On Chris's page, he talked about being open and looking for content authors. I've never heard of and so I followed it.

Taken from the site's about section: is a site dedicated to helping Architects, aspiring Architects and Lead Developers learn, connect and contribute. On this site you’ll have access to great first party content written by some of the most skilled and experienced Architects working today. You’ll also have access to, and be able to contribute to a nexus of content from around the Internet aimed at keeping Architects up to date on all the new developments in their fields of interest.

This sounds very promising. Looking over the current posts, the site looks like a great resource for posting a collection of architecture related practices through community submissions. While the site has limited information at the time of this posting, I foresee it taking off in the very near future.

  1. Thanks for the post James

    Chris, Mike Wood and myself are all thrilled with the positive reaction the community has had to the site thus far. We really want to provide a resource where community members can not only come and learn, but can submit content themselves and teach others.

    We are always looking for content. If you would like to submit a first-party article, send it to We are offering a gift to authors who's articles are published in the first month of the sites existance, so get them sent in!

    We're also always looking for tibits. If you find an article that you thing the Architecture community would find enjoyable/educational/userful, please send that link to the same address.
