Designing software architectures
It is often forgotten that common sense is the least common of the senses. Sensible design advice, guidelines, and heuristics are often no more than just that: plain old common sense. However, rational reminders of our own fallibility and cognitive biases in the form of design methods and methodologies help us improve our chances... more
