Over the years, as a practicing architect initially and in the role of a CTO, I have been coming across several interesting architecture and technology related insights and have tried to share my views through papers, books and blogs.
The objective of setting up this blog is to create a forum specifically for practicing technology professionals and architects to discuss technology and software architecture topics and exchange views. I would like to invite you all to post your thoughts and ideas so that we can have interesting discussions and learn through these.
