How do I make my architecture “scream”?
According to Uncle Bob an architecture “screams” when it clearly expresses its core business purpose.
The top level folder structure, the project/DLL names and the namespaces should express business aspects rather
than frameworks or other details.
Athena is a web application implemented in ASP.NET MVC. But is this important?
I could switch to Ruby on Rails or Node.js - it wouldn’t make any difference for the business.
Why do we let such details impact our project structure so often?

Did you enjoy reading Uncle Bob’s Clean Architecture?
I did! As with every book from Uncle Bob’s it is motivating and inspiring, right?
So let’s take his ideas and realize these in our projects to gain what he is promising!
But how do I start?
How do I transform an existing code base - following a layered (web) architecture - into the Clean Architecture?

Are you scared of doing presentations? Especially in front of a bigger audience?
You don’t have to! Just don’t do these mistakes …
- Using corporate templates
- Having content packed slides
- Writing full sentences

This week I had a discussion with a colleague of mine about stakeholder conform communication.
The content of the discussion reminded me about the “2. Habit: Begin with the end in mind”.
This habit is one of seven from Stephen Convey’s great book
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Every now and then I come across questions on how to handle dialogs in MVVM pattern with WPF.
Honestly, most of the solution proposals I don’t like as they - from my perspective - somehow
“violate” the MVVM pattern.
Here is how I handle dialogs with MVVM pattern …

Legal and privacy topics don’t have primary focus on a blog but also such topics are important …

Now that I have my basic blog running I want to tune it a little bit …

How did I set up the basics of my blog?
Of course there are endless very good posts out there about Markdown + Jekyll + GitHub Pages and I am not going
to repeat what others already have nicely documented. So let me just summarize my setup and referring to
others for more detailed explanations.

How could one blog the pragmatic, the minimalistic, the “plainionistic” way?
For me the answer is simple: Use the “power of plain text” and write posts in Markdown ;-)

After having it on the reading list for a long time and having been reminded to read it by several other sources
in the recent weeks I finally took the time get through
Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software
First, I have to admit: not an easy read - at least not for me. Of course the book is well structured and for
sure Eric knows what he is talking about but for me his language is more challenging to read as e.g. Uncle
Bob - more advanced English, longer sentences … but finally i made it ;-)
Now lets focus on content!
18 Dec 2017
As with every book by Uncle Bob it was fun to read it … so I finished it in 2 days ;-)
As the title states and in contrast to his other recent books this book is really focusing on architecture.
He clearly describes what architecture is about and what good architecture is, from his perspective.
Even if you have read his Clean Architecture article
already I strongly recommend reading the book. It goes much more into details and so brings more insights
relevant when you try realizing Clean Architecture in one of you next projects …

As my expedition in the world of web development (especially client side web development) continued and my
After some research about Angular, KnockOut, React and Vue.js I finally decided for Vue.
Even though the Vue.js online documentation is really great and gave me a good and quick start I later decided
to look for a book to gain an even better foundation. I finally selected
Vue.js 2 Cookbook

After having spent the recent weeks and months getting deeper into web development and especially into full
stack MicroServices (including non-monolith front-ends) I realized that it is time to read a book about
“client side development” in general to get a stronger foundation on state of the art development setups.
