Hello everyone!

I just sent out It Depends #42. Go get your weekly dose of great weekend reading.

This week on the blog, I discuss the sense of purpose in system design, and what that means in terms of top-down and bottom-up design. Design and evolution are complex, and sometimes conflicting things can be true with a slightly different perspective. Check it out.

For those who prefer audio, you can listen to the article on Spotify, Apple, or Google.

From the internet this week, @lauralifts explains essential complexity in system architecture, Dave Farley’s intro to reactive systems from @GOTOcon ’21, @simonsarris on why agency is the most precious resource in a malleable world, @tristanls’s introduction to Cynefin Complexity.

If you like reading about technology and teams that build technology, sign up for the next edition and bring your friends too! You can check out the previous editions in the archive.
