Hi Dave,

Thank you for writing an excellent book like this. The TOC is very interesting and I read most of the interesting questions posted in the forum.

In your openion for an aspiring architect what kind of diverse technical knowledge would be helpful ?

Thanks
Ayub

Hi Ayub,

I believe you need to focus in on areas you are passionate about. Whatever it is - learn everything you can. Read about it. Implement it. Learn the nuances. Learn what the cost drivers are. Know what the technical challenges are. Know who the industry experts are. Learn where the industry is going. ...

Learn how to describe the problem/technology at multiple levels of detail and for multiple audiences. (look to the 4+1 view architecture by Phillip Krutchen)

I read and listen to all kinds of books - business, technical, soft skills, self-improvement, ...

Good question!
