This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
My company is in the process of creating a new job role: Software Architect (Java Architect). And I've been asked to provide guidance for management to use to determine when a senior developer is ready to be promoted to architect.
Can anyone share what their company uses as criteria for determining when a senior developer is ready to be promoted to an architect?
