Roger Sessions on System Complexity at VSLive Dallas
While reviewing VSLive Dallas, I also want to mention that I sat in on a very good (keynote) session by Roger Sessions. I have read many of his articles and newsletters over the past years, so I wanted to take the opportunity to hear him speak in person.
His session was titled "Simple Architectures for Complex Enterprises" and spent alot of doing making some simple, but critical points about building complex systems. Of course, in a 1-hour session, he barely covered the analysis of the problem(s) - in order to really understand the analysis of the solution, you need to read his book on the topic by the same name.
I have the book and it look like a short, easy, but usefull read. It is definitely high up on my To-Read list!
