Non-Architecture is architecture!

After a long time of frustration and annoyance of pushing architecture to better state in the companies I previously worked, this article reflected very well on me. Especially when everyone’s focus is on growth, the non-architecture becomes the only architecture pattern in hand. This usually follows with new members joining the team and to prove themselves introduction of the big rewrite or big migration. All of these are covered in a more business-value driven and maybe a more cost-effective way in this article!

Big Ball of Mud was published twenty years ago, and rings just as true today: the most prominent architecture in successful, growth-stage companies is non-architecture. Crisp patterns are slowly overgrown by the chaotic tendrils of quick fixes, and productivity creeps towards zero.
