Our Thought Leadership

Books written by ThoughtWorkers.

The first principle of evolutionary architecture is to enable incremental change in an architecture over time. This practical guide gives you everything you need to know to get started.

by Martin Fowler

This eagerly awaited update brings a fresh perspective. It has been fully updated to reflect the profound changes in the programming landscape over the past two decades. Like the original, it enables you to understand the principles of refactoring, to spot code that needs refactoring and how to succeed.

This book explains how you can take advantage of technologies like cloud, virtualization and configuration automation to manage IT infrastructure using tools and practices from software development.

Our Insights

A few article inspired by the newest Tech Radar.

by Mike Mason

Twice a year we create the ThoughtWorks Technology Radar, an opinionated look at what’s happening in the enterprise tech world. We cover tools, techniques, languages, and platforms and we generally call out over one hundred individual ‘blips’. In this article, Mike tries to capture not just Radar themes, but wider trends across the tech industry today.

by Gareth Morgan

In today’s hyperconnected world, innovation happens pretty fast. For a technologist, whatever your specialism, there’s always something new to discover; a new tool that looks promising, maybe a technique that piques your interest. But, given the variety and pace of innovation, how do you know what to follow up on? How can you predict which innovations will be worthwhile and which will become a time sink?
