Have you heard of the International Association of Software Architects?  If you’re a software architect, or even an aspiring one, you need to be aware of this inspiring organization.  While some architecture organizations focus on a top-down, global or vendor-based approach, the IASA focuses on all IT architects at every level, regardless of their vendor affiliations, starting at the local area.  To better serve this end in the central Florida area, Tom Fuller and I have started up the Tampa Bay chapter

The IASA’s sole aim is to provide value to each other and to make IT/software architecture a full-fledged profession with a significant knowledge base and quality controls.  Key goals of the IASA are:
   • To provide the latest news and articles in the architecture discipline.
   • To support the establishment of strong relationships among architects both as peers and as mentors.
   • To support and fulfill the needs for working groups as challenges in our industry call for them.
   • To provide both local and a global forum for debate of issues pertinent to the profession.
   • To enable each and every architect the ability to grow in the profession and to impact the software industry in positive ways.

If you want to know more about this organization, please visit the IASA Web site or contact Tom or me directly (or even comment on this blog).  To get involved and be aware of important announcements (such as meeting times) in the Tampa Bay and central Florida area, register on the site for the Tampa Bay chapter.   We look forward to seeing you there!
