Microservices at Netflix: Lessons for Architectural Design
http://nginx.com/blog/microservices-at-netflix-architectural-best-practices/

In some recent blog posts, we have explained why we believe it ss crucial to adopt a four-tier application architecture in which applications are developed and deployed as sets of microservices. It is becoming increasingly clear that if you keep using development processes and application architectures that worked just fine ten years ago, you simply can not move fast enough to capture and hold the interest of mobile users who can choose from an ever-growing number of apps. Switching to a microservices architecture creates exciting opportunities in the marketplace for companies. For system architects and developers, it promises an unprecedented level of control and speed as they deliver innovative new web experiences to customers. But at such a breathless pace, it can feel like there is not a lot of room for error. In the real world, you can not stop developing and deploying your apps as you retool the processes for doing so. You know that your future success depends on transitioning to a microservices architecture, but how do you actually do it?

A Microscope on Microservices
http://techblog.netflix.com/2015/02/a-microscope-on-microservices.html

The Netflix Tech Blog: Coburn Watson, Scott Emmons, and Brendan Gregg: At Netflix we pioneer new cloud architectures and technologies to operate at massive scale - a scale which breaks most monitoring and analysis tools. The challenge is not just handling a massive instance count but to also provide quick, actionable insight for a large-scale, microservice-based architecture. Out of necessity we've developed our own tools for performance and reliability analysis, which we've also been open-sourcing (e.g., Atlas for cloud-wide monitoring). In this post we will discuss tools that the Cloud Performance and Reliability team have been developing, which are used together like a microscope switching between different magnifications as needed.

Netflix's Viewing Data: How We Know Where You Are in House of Cards
http://techblog.netflix.com/2015/01/netflixs-viewing-data-how-we-know-where.html

The Netflix Tech Blog: Over the past 7 years, Netflix streaming has expanded from thousands of members watching occasionally to millions of members watching over two billion hours every month. Each time a member starts to watch a movie or TV episode, a view is created in our data systems and a collection of events describing that view is gathered. Given that viewing is what members spend most of their time doing on Netflix, having a robust and scalable architecture to manage and process this data is critical to the success of our business. In this post we%u2019ll describe what works and what breaks in an architecture that processes billions of viewing-related events per day.

10 JavaScript libraries to draw your own diagrams
http://modeling-languages.com/javascript-drawing-libraries-diagrams/

It%u2019s limitless what you can render in a browser today using Javascript. In a previous post we have presented a list of online modeling tools which allow creating diagrams directly in the browser. Most of these tools use Javascript to render shapes and interact with them. In the actual post we present a list of 10 Javascript libraries that could be used to create a diagramming tool. Some of these libraries have high level support for advanced features (e.g., ready to use - shapes, palette, drag/drop,while others present a low level drawing features. Both open source and commercial libraries are covered. A comparative table is presented at the end of the post.

The Hidden Meanings of Maps: Between the Lines of Legend
http://geoawesomeness.com/hidden-meanings-maps-lines-legend/

Most cartographers neglect map legends. They put a lot of efforts in the projection and scale choice, data and pretty colors selection, but then they just want to add a powerful title and press the share button. That is a mistake, as the cartographical legend is the key to understand the map. It is like building a beautiful door and forgetting to put a keyhole on it. It sounds obvious to say, but it is a major communication issue found in very prestigious media maps, still today. When maps were made by hand, making the legend was part of a very artistic process. This article puts side by side recent maps made with computers and ancient ones, drawn by hand, on purpose, to illustrate better the importance of skills and knowledge over technology when it comes to mapping.

Evaluating the capabilities of Enterprise Architecture modeling tools for Visual Analysis
http://www.jot.fm/contents/issue_2015_01/article3.html

By: Naranjo David, Mario Snchez, Jorge Villalobos. In model analysis activities, it is critical to make early statements and diagnosis from a high level of abstraction. Currently, these tasks are difficult to perform, and they require both the involvement of experts and the elaboration of specialized artifacts. Furthermore, the complexity of the tasks increases as models become bigger and more detailed. In other contexts, it has been noticed that total / holistic / unfiltered visualizations may give insight about the models, providing analysts a starting point for exploration and general pattern discovery. In this paper, we evaluate the support that six different Enterprise Architecture (EA) modeling tools offer to EA analysis activities, and assess the strengths and weaknesses of six visualization frameworks, in order to extend the analysis of enterprise models by Visual Analysis. The evaluation is based on a set of 14 requirements which are either visualization-related or specific to EA analysis, and its results were harvested from a) observed characteristics of the diagrams of these tools, and b) visualizations from an enterprise model, generated with the aforementioned visualization frameworks. These results point to several actionable subjects and research opportunities for the field of EA Modeling and Analysis. 201D, Journal of Object Technology, Volume 14, no. 1 (April 2015), pp. 3:1-32, doi:10.5381/jot.2015.14.1.a3.

Microservice Design Patterns - Miles to go 2.0 ...
http://blog.arungupta.me/microservice-design-patterns/

The main characteristics of a microservices-based application are defined in Microservices, Monoliths, and NoOps. They are functional decomposition or domain-driven design, well-defined interfaces, explicitly published interface, single responsibility principle, and potentially polyglot. Each service is fully autonomous and full-stack. Thus changing a service implementation has no impact to other services as they communicate using well-defined interfaces. There are several advantages of such an application, but its not a free lunch and requires a significant effort in NoOps. But lets say you understand the required effort, or at least some pieces of it, that is required to build such an application and willing to take a jump. What do you do? What is your approach for architecting such applications? Are there any design patterns on how these microservices work with each other?

Deborah J. Nightingale and Donna H. Rhodes (2015)
Architecting the Future Enterprise

Every enterprise evolves continuously, driven by changing needs or new opportunities. Most often this happens gradually, with small adjustments to strategy, organization, processes, or infrastructure. But sometimes enterprises need to go beyond minor fixes and transform themselves, in response to a disruptive event or dramatically changing circumstances -- a merger, for example, or a new competitor. In this book, enterprise architecting experts Deborah Nightingale and Donna Rhodes offer a framework for enterprise transformation. Successful transformation, they believe, starts with a holistic approach, taking into consideration all facets of the enterprise and its environment rather than focusing solely on one factor -- information technology, for example, or organizational structure. This is architecting the future enterprise: creating a blueprint for what the enterprise will look like after the transformation. Nightingale and Rhodes introduce the ARIES (Architecting Innovative Enterprise Strategy) framework, including a ten enterprise element model and an architecting process model, and show how to apply it, from start to finish. They explain how to create a holistic vision for the future enterprise and how to generate concepts and alternative architectures; they describe techniques for evaluating possible architectures, tools for implementation planning, and strategies for communicating with stakeholders. Nightingale and Rhodes offer real-world examples throughout, drawing on their work at MIT, with an extensive case study of enterprise transformation at a medical device manufacturer. An appendix offers two additional architecting projects. Seven Architecting Imperatives* Make architecting the initial activity in transformation. * Develop a comprehensive understanding of the enterprise landscape. * Understand what stakeholders value and how that may change in the future.* Use multiple perspectives to see the whole enterprise.* Create an architecting team suited to the transformation challenges.* Engage all levels of leadership in transformation. * Architect for the enterprise's changing world.

TJ Parro and Jim May (2014)
Building Enterprise Architecture

Savvy organizations know their Enterprise Architects enable business outcomes. This formerly tactical IT "job" is today a strategic position. Enterprise architects increasingly report outside of IT to the CFO, CMO or office of the CEO. Why this quiet elevation? Enterprise Architects work at the leading edge of organizations; in the zone where business capabilities are born. This is why today's CEO's collaborate with their Enterprise Architects when evaluating short and long term strategies. Enterprise Architects continuously blend business and technical capabilities to meet the ongoing demand for new capabilities. If it sounds like ninja smoke.... It is... and smart organizations already know it works. Making Enterprise Architecture work involves mutual understanding and trust between EA's and CEO's. This is the first in a planned series of books designed to help maximize investments in Enterprise Architecture. The topics are based on executive's questions and issues addressed in the author's experience teaching enterprise architecture to executives and in delivering EA solutions to large organizations. This first volume begins with basic connecting points between executive and architect and discusses effective techniques for moving architecture to the enterprise level in the organization. The centerpiece in this volume is the ERAM (Enterprise Resource Allocation Management) concept. This volume isn't intended to answer every possible question on Enterprise Architecture. It is intended to start the dialogue in a productive way...
