What I (and the book) mean in the term "software architect" is the role,
which is similar to that of architects who design buildings.
Software architects deal with issues like modularity, design patterns,
design for change, complexity management.
The software architecture function apparently is not fully recognized as
yet. Several projects still employ people, who act as software
architects, but without the requisite training.
There is no IGLU Cabal. We are still looking for a chief software
architect to round out the skill set.

language movies and other Hebrew TV & cable TV programs.
