comment What is the best way to discuss/plan/negotiate about code architecture remotely?
I did not think it was a generic training video. I was just curious what your design videos ended up looking like, what kind of information they conveyed and how you did it. Is it a screen cast walking through code? Teammembers talking around a whiteboard? A recorded presentation? Something else entirely? What are the most important things to include in a video architecture description? I assumed you would not be able to share but I thought I'd ask anyway.

This sounds interesting... anything you can share?

I agree, evolving the architecture is fine - as long as the team is experienced in the domain and qualities you're dealing with and is able to manage the right risks at the right times.

@RYUZAKI, you're welcome to submit your own answer to this question as this isn't really a discussion forum. Given the open nature of the question there is no right or wrong answer so there's no sense arguing with someone about their answer. The best thing to do is post your own answer to this question and let your answer stand for itself.

Good list. The only things I'd throw in are predicate logic and a basic foundation for making proofs (induction, proof by contradiction, etc).

comment Architecture Review Guidelines for Java/JEE project
How much of your architecture do you have described? Do you have diagrams, quality attribute scenarios? It sounds like you already have implemented the system, is this right? How big is your project? What is the goal of the review? Are you looking for architecture conformance or is this a first step before, for example, extending the system? These things all play into the kinds of assessments you might consider.

ATAM is a tried and true technique. You'll get the most out of it with an experienced ATAM facilitator, though teams I've been on still got a lot of out of the ATAM on our own. On our own, it was challenging because we were sometimes unsure about certain steps or outcomes as we went through the process.

comment How does a Scrum team account for infrastructure tasks in the planning meeting?
@Kristo, I don't think your customer/product manager would let you get away with this. Even without an established velocity, you'll make a good guess and negotiate the value to be delivered for those first sprints. Plus if you spike like @S.Lott suggests you won't be delivering anyway.

And you should be making time for regular reflection and making process improvements like this anyway.
