I’m Now An Editor!
In a new chapter of my professional career, I have recently become the editor of a column in IEEE Software magazine.
I must admit that I never saw myself as an editor, so it was quite a surprise to be asked. And taking over from an editor as accomplished as Frank Buschmann was a little intimidating. But after asking some trusted colleagues for advice, I decided to commit to it and the first couple of columns have now been published (here and here). I’m really pleased I took the plunge and hopefully people are enjoying the first couple of articles.
The column I have taken over from Frank is called the Pragmatic Architect and in it I hope to publish a series of practical, easily digestible articles on topics that will interest working software architects. I plan for this to include introductions to emerging technologies or architecture innovations, lessons learned about software architecture methods and techniques, and personal accounts of real projects and architectures, particularly those where hard lessons were learned.
So if you’d like to write something for the column or would like to see a particular topic covered, please do contact me and let me know.
