On February 14th has been published the list of the most-loved Rational articles in 2011. Even if I am not sure what “most-loved” means here (can you really be in love with a technical paper??), I am glad to see that the one I wrote on architecture with RSA 8 is on the list. (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rational/library/define-application-architecture-rational-software-architect-1/index.html)
But I must that this popularity raises a couple of questions. Published last October, the article has been viewed almost 15 000 times. I also created e-books from the article and they reached over 200 downloads since November 22, 2011. So why is this article so popular? Is it because it talks about RSA 8? Or because it covers an agile practice, the evolutionary architecture? Maybe there not enough enablement resources available on RSA. Maybe architecture is not covered properly by the agile community?
I'd like to have more feedback from the community. If you read this post, do not hesitate to contact me.
