An organization dedicated to professional software architecture. One of the founding members is Grady Booch, one of the ThreeAmigos. It is an association with the lofty goal of standardizing and promoting software architecture and engineering along principles rivaling the rigid standards of building architecture.
It can be found at www.wwisa.org
It's not easy to reconcile the values of wwisa and the usual pattern community values:
I believe that creating software along rigid standards of building architecture is the wrong approach. That means using waterfall methodologies which lead to high technical debt and rigid code that is difficult to maintain. Software changes in unpredictable ways at unpredictable times. It's more organic than a building. I'm a proponent of Software Gardening, which promotes Agile, Software Craftsmanship, TDD, Refactoring, SOLID, Continuous Integration, and other concepts that make it easy to enhance, update, extend, and modify code. -- Craig Berntson
