Publisher's Summary

By applying universal rules of software architecture, you can dramatically improve developer productivity throughout the life of any software system. Now, building upon the success of his best-selling books Clean Code and The Clean Coder, legendary software craftsman Robert C. Martin (“Uncle Bob”) reveals those rules and helps you apply them.

Martin’s Clean Architecture doesn’t merely present options. Drawing on over a half-century of experience in software environments of every imaginable type, Martin tells you what choices to make and why they are critical to your success. As you’ve come to expect from Uncle Bob, this book is packed with direct, no-nonsense solutions for the real challenges you’ll face - the ones that will make or break your projects.

  • Learn what software architects need to achieve–and core disciplines and practices for achieving it
  • Master essential software design principles for addressing function, component separation, and data management
  • See how programming paradigms impose discipline by restricting what developers can do
  • Understand what’s critically important and what’s merely a “detail”
  • Implement optimal, high-level structures for web, database, thick-client, console, and embedded applications
  • Define appropriate boundaries and layers, and organize components and services
  • See why designs and architectures go wrong, and how to prevent (or fix) these failures

Clean Architecture is an essential book for every current or aspiring software architect, systems analyst, system designer, and software manager - and for every programmer who must execute someone else’s designs.

Awesome intro to Architecture

Loved every bit, and byte. Having joined the electronics field in the late 70s and software field in the 80s I also loved the history and nostalgia. Transitioning from an electronics technician to C coder, to C++, and now C#, as well as managing software teams I have been blessed with having good architects on the team. This book helped me understand their craft better.

Great suggestions in software architecture

I just couldn't stop listening to this. It as an audio version of a textbook, and it is very well done. I will be hearing it again! I still picked up the Kindle version for reference. In addition to the invaluable suggestions in designing system architecture, he even talks about embedded systems, and how you should abstract both the hardware and RTOS, so you are not at a loss when a processor changes! In addition, his autobiographical stories in the last chapter were totally delightful. Reminding me of the times in the 1980's where I was patching 6502 code in memory to get my assembler to work! 2708 EPROMS! I remember them! In a nutshell, "Software Design Defense". A total delight.

Excellent book and narration

Definite classic that applies to all software development regardless of programming language, tools, and environment.

Outstanding book

It's incredible to see how Uncle Bob brings examples from the eighties to show us the relation with the modern architecture. But even more incredible it is to see how in reality the things that have changed since then are few.

Great audiobook on software architecture

Incredibly useful for a mid-level software engineer. Written in a very east-to-follow manner (even in the audiobook firmat), with some great considerations and examples. Loved it!
