  Software architecture is…

what the software architect does
• collection of the fundamental decisions about a software
  product/solution designed to meet the project‘s quality

• Includes the main components, their main attributes, and their

• expressed in several levels of abstraction (depending on the
  project's size).

• Architecture is communicated from multiple viewpoints

• Tradeoffs are made explicit

         The Tao of Software Architect
   The architect doesn't talk, he acts.
   When this is done,
   the team says, "Amazing:
   we did it, all by ourselves!" (17)

                      The architect observes the world
                      but trusts his inner vision.
                      He allows things to come and go.
                      His heart is open as the sky. (12)
