Software Architecture disruption?

:Adrian Colyer is a smart guy and he  put together, in a talk, what software architectures will look like for the next years. True is, most of the services you’re using online today follow these architecture principles. Nothing new, thought.

Nothing in this architecture is can go wrong,  it’s so simple! This type of architecture is the perfect fit for this ubiquitous platform that is Internet.

Btw,  SpringSource makes it really easy to develop applications in this way, just look to Spring Integration project, for example. They have a plenty of projects, built on top of Spring, that makes development of this type of architectures more, and more fun and easy.

Se eles investem 100 Milhões…

Continuando o tema do post anterior sobre redes sociais, hoje vi publicado, no Wall Street Journal, que o Twitter conseguiu um financiamento de 100 Milhões de dólares (cerca de 68 Milhões de Euros) de algumas empresas e fundos de capital de risco.

Acho que o vídeo que se segue fala por si.

“The computer in your cell phone today is a million times cheaper and a thousand times more powerful and about a hundred thousand times smaller [than the one computer at MIT in 1965] and so that’s a billion-fold increase in capability per dollar or per euro that we’ve actually seen in the last 40 years”

“The rate is actually speeding up a little bit so we will see another billion-fold increase in the next 25 years. And another hundred-thousand-fold shrinking. So what used to fit in a building now fits in your pocket, what fits in your pocket now will fit inside a blood cell in 25 years.”
