  • hi

    What is the minimum knowledge/understanding about an arhitecture that a designer (ie non-architect) should have? Or to be more specific, could you recommend me a book(s) that should bring me to that level ( along with me doing plenty of exercises  )?

    thank you

  • Gaining architectural experience a long way , there is no short cut few steps that i took

    1. Understand the platform on which you are working 
    2. Understand the solution provided by the platform (like .Net/Microsoft)
    3. Look for competitor platforms  
    4. Try to understand various design patterns (when to use what)
    5. Look for the cases studies

    Here is a link that gives a very good overview Microsoft Application Architecture Guide, 2nd Edition

  • In our company, http://www.comm100.com/, we use OOD (object oriented design) heavily. It may appear the concept of OOD is pretty old fashion, but from my own experience, OOD is the #1 most important skill an architect should have.

  • you are right OOD and OOP are heart and core all the application and solution , even to understand and apply a simple design pattern you need to understand theses concepts well.
