Interesting Idea: Architecture Review Working Group

John Allspaw wrote an interesting blog post describing how he dealt with requests to introduce new technologies or design patterns. While he’s writing from the software development perspective, the ideas apply equally well to network architecture, so go and read what he has to say (and how he defines what engineering method is).


  1. Thanks for sharing this. I especially liked the impact of, what the author called "power dynamic" which can severely impact dialogue and decision making. In my experience this is the biggest hurdle to take when dealing with architecture and design processes. Being an introvert myself dealing with this kind of dynamic makes it even more difficult from time to time.
