  1. I really enjoyed this video and it was full of insights, but there's a low end rumble in the background of the video that's driving me crazy
  2. 6.31 - The guy interviewing doesn't know what is strategy pattern and he also doesn't care (His face and expressions shows lol). haha but extremely good points from Mark
  3. Great insights! As IT is driving more and more of the business, in my point of view the role of an architect can make and break the sustainability of a business and it should be placed very close to the management, same as marketing to provide the possibility to play a political role.
  4. Don't neglect managing expectations!
