Visual Studio 2005 Team Systems for Architects

Microsoft has a site dedicated towards Architects geared towards VSTS where if you are an Architect (or an aspiring one) then you can learn more on this and also provide feedback back to Microsoft. Of interest on the same lines would be the following blogs too:

Here is an excerpt from the site:

Building complex service-oriented solutions requires several architectural considerations including services and contract design, communications security, operations manageability and provisioning, and so on. Add to this, the time-honored issues architectural teams are mired with—architecting upfront with deployment in mind, ensuring design changes are propagated to code and vice versa, establishing seamless communication between design and development teams and design and operations teams.

Visual Studio 2005 Team Architect Edition addresses exactly these problems at the core with a set of Distributed System Designers that help reduce the complexity of developing and deploying service-oriented applications. A core deliverable of the Dynamic Systems Initiative (DS), these designers, leveraging the System Definition Model (SDM), allow senior developers and architects to define service-oriented applications that will be configured into systems for deployment. While application architects can visualize their service-oriented applications, developers can work with the generated code while keeping the code-changes synchronized with the visual design. In addition, the Distributed System Designers can be used to create diagrams or interconnected hosts that represent the logical structure of a data center for the purpose of communicating important information to the developer about the target deployment environment. The Distributed System Designers can also bind applications to these logical servers and validate them against the constraints of the application/data center prior to actual deployment.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
