Application and Enterprise Architecture has been put through its paces in the agile world over the years: ideals (architectural work inside the development team, shortening the design-to-implementation loop as much as possible), misinterpretations ("We don't need no stinking Architects!" screamed the Keyboard Cowboys), and the inevitable backlash of misinterpretations, lack of craft, and the inertia of the status quo (Architectural Epics continuing to encourage a split between business and IT, command-and-control capital-"A" Architects).
Where are we now? What have we learned? More importantly, what have we forgotten?
Now more than ever, we need to go back to the core principles of agility and emergent architecture. Let's talk.
