In this video course, software architecture veteran Matt Stine describes the history of pattern languages and shows how they help us communicate about software architectures. He introduces a pattern language specifically well suited for cloud architecture–the Brick and Mortar Pattern Language–and examines the three metaphors that influenced its creation: the LEGO® Building System, interchangeable parts, and cellular organic systems.
