Building upon the success of best-sellers The Clean Coder and Clean Code, legendary software craftsman Robert C. “Uncle Bob” Martin shows how to bring greater professionalism and discipline to application architecture and design. As with his other books, Martin’s Clean Architecture doesn’t merely present a couple of choices and options, and say “use your best judgment”: it tells you what choices to make, and why those choices are critical to your success. Martin offers direct, no-nonsense answers to key architecture and design questions like: What are the most productive high level structures for other kinds of applications, including web, database, thick-client, console, and embedded apps? What are the core principles of software architecture? What’s the role of the architect, and what is he/she in point of fact trying to reach? What are the core principles of software design? How do designs and architectures go mistaken, and what are you able to do about it? What are the disciplines and practices of professional architects and designers? Clean Architecture is very important reading for each and every software architect, systems analyst, system designer, and software manager — and for any programmer who aspires to these roles or is impacted by their work.
