From the Publisher
From the Preface of “Clean Architecture”
“…The rules of software architecture are the rules of ordering and assembling the building blocks of programs. And since those building blocks are universal and haven’t changed, the rules for ordering them are likewise universal and changeless.
But one thing has changed: Back then, we didn’t know what the rules were. Consequently, we broke them, over and over again. Now, with half a century of experience behind us, we have a grasp of those rules.
And it is those rules—those timeless, changeless, rules—that this book is all about.”
— Robert C. “Uncle Bob” Martin

“It is the best pragmatic application of Lean principles to software I have ever seen in print.” —James O. Coplien, Founder of the Pasteur Organizational Patterns project “Some technical books inspire and teach; some delight and amuse. Rarely does a technical book do all four of these things.” — George Bullock “. . . [A] timely and humble reminder of the ever-increasing complexity of our programmatic world and how we owe it to the legacy of humankind–and to ourselves–to practice ethical development.” — Stacia Heimgartner Viscardi, CST & Agile Mentor “What is in the world of Agile development is nothing compared to what could be. This book is Bob’s perspective on what to focus on to get to that ‘what could be.’ And he’s been there, so it’s worth listening.” — Kent Beck “A good architecture comes from understanding it more as a journey than as a destination, more as an ongoing process of enquiry than as a frozen artifact.” — Kevlin Henney
Pick Up Where Clean Code Leaves Off
“As software developers, we have to continually solve important problems for our employers, customers, colleagues, and future selves. Getting the app to work, though difficult, is not enough, it does not make you a craftsman. With an app working, you have passed the app-titude test. You may have the aptitude to be a craftsman, but there is more to master. In these pages, Bob expresses clearly the techniques and responsibilities to go beyond the app-titude test and shows the way of the serious software craftsman.”
— James Grenning, author of Test-Driven Development for Embedded C and Agile Manifesto co-author
