About Kevlin Henney
I'm an independent consultant, international speaker, writer and trainer. I live in Bristol and online.
My software development interests are in patterns, programming, practice and process. As well as contributing to a number of projects, I've been involved in (far too) many committees (for conferences, publications and standards, but as yet I've not been on a committee for committees).
My fiction writing tends to the short side — and occasionally to the dark side — spanning a number of genres.

Practical Software Architecture Solutions from the Legendary Robert C. Martin (“Uncle Bob”)
By applying universal rules of software architecture, you can dramatically improve developer productivity throughout the life of any software system. Now, building upon the success of his best-selling books Clean Code and The Clean Coder, legendary software craftsman Robert C. Martin (“Uncle Bob”) reveals those rules and helps you apply them.
Martin’s Clean Architecture doesn’t merely present options. Drawing on over a half-century of experience in software environments of every imaginable type, Martin tells you what choices to make and why they are critical to your success. As you’ve come to expect from Uncle Bob, this book is packed with direct, no-nonsense solutions for the real challenges you’ll face–the ones that will make or break your projects.
- Learn what software architects need to achieve–and core disciplines and practices for achieving it
- Master essential software design principles for addressing function, component separation, and data management
- See how programming paradigms impose discipline by restricting what developers can do
- Understand what’s critically important and what’s merely a “detail”
- Implement optimal, high-level structures for web, database, thick-client, console, and embedded applications
- Define appropriate boundaries and layers, and organize components and services
- See why designs and architectures go wrong, and how to prevent (or fix) these failures
Clean Architecture is essential reading for every current or aspiring software architect, systems analyst, system designer, and software manager–and for every programmer who must execute someone else’s designs.

To be successful as a software architect, you need to master both business and technology. This book tells you what top software architects think is important and how they approach a project. If you want to enhance your career, 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know is essential reading.
The authors will guide you through the best practices and introduce you to key areas of building distributed software systems. POSA 4 connects many stand-alone patterns, pattern collections and pattern languages from the existing body of literature found in the POSA series. Such patterns relate to and are useful for distributed computing to a single language.
- The panel of experts provides you with a consistent and coherent holistic view on the craft of building distributed systems.
- Includes a foreword by Martin Fowler
- A must read for practitioners who want practical advice to develop a comprehensive language integrating patterns from key literature.
What is your role as a leader?
Team Leadership is the missing link that connects all the buzzwords you hear these days about unit testing, TDD, Continuous Integration, Scrum, XP and others, to the real world where actual people have to learn, implement, and mainly, believe and push for this stuff to happen.
This book is meant for software team leaders, architects and anyone with a leadership role in the software business.
Read advice from real team leaders, consultants and everyday gurus of management: Johanna Rothman, Uncle Bob Martin, Dan North, Kevlin Henney, Jurgen Appelo, Patrick Kua and many others. Each with their own little story and reason to say just one thing that matters the most to them about leading teams.
See what it'll feel like if you do things wrong, and what you can do about things that might go wrong, before they happen.

About the Technology
Packaging code into neat, well-defined units makes it easier to deliver safe and reliable applications. The Java Platform Module System is a language standard for creating these units. With modules, you can closely control how JARs interact and easily identify any missing dependencies at startup. This shift in design is so fundamental that starting with Java 9, all core Java APIs are distributed as modules, and libraries, frameworks, and applications will benefit from doing the same.
About the Book
The Java Module System is your in-depth guide to creating and using Java modules. With detailed examples and easy-to-understand diagrams, you'll learn the anatomy of a modular Java application. Along the way, you'll master best practices for designing with modules, debugging your modular app, and deploying to production.
