I have been associated with DNUG and SQLCON since long, and i have seen how much it has helped the developer community. Some of us have been thinking it would be great if a similar thing be available for Architects and Aspiring architects as well here.
In the same context a week back i started a group called 'ArchForum'
The idea behind this is to have aspiring archs and practicing archs from various domain and technology expertise to come and dicuss on all new Industry Trends, architecture and design problems in the projects, book reviews on architetcure and design and so on.
It would be great if all the architects and aspiring archs join this group and enable more discussions around this.
I am looking at ideas from people as what they think this group should be doing in near and far future and how it can be promoted.
I am right now thinking of starting with few offline UG Meets as soon as possible. However the online group should be a platform to share best practices,documents, information, problems and ask the peers for arch suggestions etc.
Some of the members are planning to have a launch meeting in Hyderabad sometime in October, if everything works out well.
Interested can join the group here http://www.google.com/group/archforum and contribute your ideas and thoughts in the Hello World discussion thread
