I wrote about Architects in Code Your Way Up but felt the need to digress on the topic a little bit here in a recent post on Dev.to

I’ve always found the title of Architect to be a little self-fulfilling, i.e., I want to be a “title” so give me a title that sounds cool and in software, I fear that the term of “Architect” has become one of those titles.

The implementation varies across people, jobs and boundaries which serves as further proof to it being a self-generated title (which is a little scarier).

If you’re writing code and designing software, you are still a developer, you don’t need to put a different name on it.
