Grade Your System Architecture Knowledge

30. January 2007 19:05

I am a frequent reader of the Inside Architecture Blog.  Yesterday, Nick Malik posted a good read that reveals his expectations of candidates interviewing for a position as a system architect.  He also covered some various scenarios used as the basis of certain interview questions.

Anyone interested in moving into a more of a system architect role should read his post.  Nick's position requirements and interview exercises provide an excellent overview of the necessary skills.  It's an easy way to give yourself some honest feedback.

This is of personal interest to me because I am working to transition toward more of a system architect role.  I know of quite a few people with similar ambitions, so I thought others might find it useful as well.
