Re: Software architecture as code

Thanks for the kind words, Bas. The simplest approach, if you're using a whiteboard or a general purpose diagramming tool (e.g. Visio, Gliffy, etc), is to add a line to the "definition of done" for a work item that basically says, "have you updated the diagrams and documentation?". A better approach would be use whiteboard sketches for the up-front design exercise and then automatically generate the diagrams from the code once you have some code. There are many tools out there to do this, but I personally don't think they provide a good way to visualise the software architecture. This is why I built Structurizr.
