I have been writing this book for more than a year now. The idea to write this book arouse when a lot of my friends and colleagues frequently asked me 'There are so many changes going on in technology at a rapid pace and what is the best book available which would cover all of the contemporary architectural trends and concepts?'.
In today’s world, it is very essential to have a 360 degree view of the entire technology architecture space and then as and when required, the person can dive deep into specific topics. Often, an architect has to make or enable technological decisions involving data, tools, frameworks, language etc. Getting a bird’s view of the entire landscape and knowledge of various choices at hand, assist in making right decisions.
For instance, an architect may not be an expert in infrastructure as other infrastructure folks, but has to have a sufficient high level knowledge to come up with system design and interact with all stakeholders.
I tried to find a book for myself which would serve the above purpose, but couldn’t find the right book. I feel this book best serves the above purpose. This book provides end to end knowledge to design and architect an application in a Cloud and Distributed environment.
