    • Principles of Agile Architecture 1. The teams that code the system design the system 2. Build the simplest architecture that can possibly work 3. When in doubt, code it out 4. They build it, they test it 5. The bigger the system, the longer the runway 6. System architecture is a role collaboration 7. There is no monopoly on innovation 8. Implement architectural flow 8

    • Building Architecture Runway 3. Update 1. Determine initial component-based architecture that will influence the eventual formation of the application teams. Architects / Technical iterate leaders If uncertainty high & risky Feedback 2. Prototyping (Optional) 13
    • Extending Architecture Runway 3. Update Spikes that cannot resolved “program” spikes 1. Identify story : design spikes, refactoring within a team into iteration required, evaluations & dependencies. 2. Determine what features the system iterate may require in upcoming release plan that are not presently supported by architecture. Architects / Technical iterate leaders 14

    • One of the more insidious and persistent myths of agile development is that up-front architecture and design are bad; that you should never spend time up front making architectural decisions. That instead you should evolve your architecture and design from nothing, one test- case at a time. Pardon me, but that’s Horse Shit. (...) Don’t feel that TDD is the only way to design. On the other hand, don’t let yourself get too vested in your designs. Allow TDD to change your plans if it leads you in a different direction. Robert C. Martin, ObjectMentor blog, „The Scatalogy of Agile Architecture”, 25.04.2009 17
