Welcome to season 4 of the award-winning .NET Core Podcast! Check that link for proof. Hello everyone and welcome to The .NET Core Podcast is a podcast where we reach into the core of the .NET technology stack and, with the help of the .NET community, present you with the information that you need in order to grok the many moving parts of one of the biggest cross-platform, multi-application frameworks on the planet.

I am your host, Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor. In this episode, I talked with Paul Michaels about Software Architecture and how important it is to get the architecture right before writing code. Paul has recently published a new book on the subject called "Software Architecture by Example: Using C# and .NET" which covers CQRS, event sourcing, distributed systems, and distributed transactions, to name just a few.

Along the way we covered ubiquitous language, living documentation, and keeping a log of the rationale behind why you made the decisions that you did when building your applications and how this can help other devs when they have the "wtf" moment while reading your code.

After we had finished recording, Paul passed along a discount code for his book. You can only get the discount code by heading to the show notes for this episode and scrolling to the bottom of the transcription. It will be listed in the "useful links" section.

The full show notes, including links to some of the things we discussed and a full transcription of this episode, can be found at
