I am involved in a workgroup on software architecture organized by ILTAM.
ILTAM is an organization for maturing new technologies in existing industries and provide a ground for intellectual cooperation.
I was invited to present the issue of when architecture is discussed, as part of the product lifecycle and whether it is related to other tasks.
The first problem I have is researching software architecture. I have formal education in electronics, not in software, so I have to find the sources for information. Additionally, I have to understand where software architecture fits in the product development phase.
So I have two weeks and I’m starting to find out how difficult is to find academic references when you don’t have a lead.
I will update on the research status.
