Ressources for software architects

arc42 supports software- and system architects. It is based upon practical experience of many architecture projects of different sizes and domains. It includes feedback of its many users.

arc42 contains a template for development, documentation and communication of software architectures.

arc42 fits arbitrary technologies and tools.

arc42 therefore ensures better software- and system architectures.

Together with
arc42 we propose a lightweight set of activities (process) for effective construction and development of software architectures.

You can use
arc42 for free, even for commercial applications. We are happy when you quote us.
