WHY IT MATTERS: this is part of a short series on evolutionary architectures which discuss new approaches regarding software architecture that integrate the concept of architecture validation during the build and deployment process, much akin to what is being done with TDD to validate the functional requirements are met. This remains complex to implement IMHO but nevertheless has the merit to address a real problem with architecture, that is their lack of enforcement. Geeks, read it! Others, well, you might find this a bit obtuse… 😉
