Programming without an overall architecture or design in mind is like exploring a cave with only a flashlight: You don’t know where you’ve been, you don’t know where you’re going, and you don’t know quite where you are. - Danny Thorpe
If you think good architecture is expensive, try bad architecture. - Brian Foote and Joseph Yoder
Software Architecture refers to all the components, how they interact with each other, the environment in
which they operate, and the principles used to design the software. It makes the whole system easier to
understand, by providing the big picture on the current system architecture and it makes the
decision-making process more efficient.
