You can see a short interview that InfoQ did with Eoin and me on our new book here.
In the interview we talk about the motivation behind the first edition of the book, and the rationale for some of the changes we made for the second edition (for example, adding the Context viewpoint). We also discuss architecture in the context of some of the “hot” topics for InfoQ readers such as cloud computing and agile development.
If you’ve never heard of InfoQ before, it’s a great online resource: “… InfoQ.com (Information Queue) is an independent online community focused on change and innovation in enterprise software development, targeted primarily at the technical architect, technical team lead (senior developer), and project manager. InfoQ serves the Java, .NET, Ruby, SOA, and Agile communities with daily news written by domain experts, articles, video interviews, video conference presentations, and mini-books.” They also help organise the QCon conferences in London and New York.
