Want to know more about the #ITArchitectJourrney?

For aspiring IT architects, this book can be the guide along the journey.  It is the book I (and many others) wish existed when I began my IT architecture journey.

This book is also a great resource for those who are not sure if they want to be an IT architect. It will give those readers an understanding of what an IT architect does, and what the journey to becoming an IT architect looks like

For experienced IT architects, this book is a great refresher.  Whether they are looking to continue their journey with a certification such as the VCDX certification, a job change, or learning new technologies, this book is written with them in mind also.

There is more to becoming an IT architect than just learning and practicing the needed skills. IT Architect Series: The Journey teaches the lessons learned during the author’s personal journey to becoming an IT architect.  These lessons can apply to anyone.  From aspiring and experienced IT architects to application owners, marketing professionals, and CTOs, all will find these lessons useful.

The book is divided into four parts:

    Part I is about getting ready to begin your journey to becoming an IT architect. In the first part of this book, you will get into the right mindset, and begin to gather the tools you need to begin your journey in earnest.
    Part II dives deeper into the core skills required to become an IT architect, and why they are important. Then, we focus on gaining different types of experience with these core skills.
    Part III discusses more areas an IT architect is concerned with, such as continued learning, certifications, and career changes.
    Part IV contains appendices to help you along your IT architecture journey, such as a self-assessment workbook, an IT architecture scenario, and a compilation of resources.
