Architecture Weekly #73 - 2nd May 2022
Welcome to the new week!
Composition is a key. A key for maintainable and straightforward software. Event-Driven is an approach that also enables that. By those powers combined, you can create a decent processing pipeline. I described that on practical C# example in my latest article: How to build a simple event pipeline.
Speaking on examples and keys. Practical ones are keys to understanding complex topics. Enrico Pincing managed to join that in his Exploring Architectural Concepts Building a Card Game article.
The other key to the learning process is understanding and transparency. Slack showed that in their post mortem explaining Slack’s Incident on 2-22-22. By the way, it’s always DNS, or cache, or DNS. Always.
In the same spirit, Jason Cox wrote his Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Playlist. Compare that to your checklist and see if something is missing or you (dis)agree.
I’m not sure if it’s key to anything. To be true, I’m not even sure of what to think about that, but Elon Musk is taking ownership of Twitter:
I’m not a huge fan of Elon Musk, I’m not sure how many people are fascinated by him, but that’s touching me, as Twitter is my favourite social media. I’ll keep you posted if I have more findings.
Last but not least, I definitely need to read Daniel Stenberg - Uncurled - everything I know and learned about running and maintaining Open Source projects for three decades. Sounds like a must-have for OSS maintainers.

p.s. I invite you to join the paid version of Architecture Weekly. It already contains the exclusive Discord channel for subscribers (and my GitHub sponsors). Soon we’ll have the first live meeting. This is a great space for knowledge sharing. Don’t wait to be a part of it!
p.s.2. Ukraine is still under brutal Russian invasion. A lot of Ukrainian people are hurt, without shelter and need help. You can help in various ways, for instance, directly helping refugees, spreading awareness, and putting pressure on your local government or companies. You can also support Ukraine by donating, e.g. to Red Cross, the Ukraine humanitarian organisation. You may also consider joining Tech for Ukraine initiative.
