The Architecture Journal

As part of our patterns & practices App Arch Guide 2.0 Project, I'm scanning Microsoft for helpful architect and architecture related resources.  One helpful resource I found is The Architecture Journal.

The Architecture Journal
Here's the journal's description from their home page:

“The Architecture Journal is an independent platform for free thinkers and practitioners of IT architecture. New editions are issued quarterly, with articles designed to offer perspective, share knowledge, and help you learn the discipline and pursue the art of IT architecture.”

Sounds like just what the doctor ordered!

Article Map
To make it easy for my team to find the articles, I created an index that matches the MSDN tree.  We'll be digging through the articles throughout our project.  Creating the map actually helped me quickly see the scope and range of the articles, so it was a great exercise.
