Cheese & Contracts
*Architecture is design, and design is about making trade-offs. It’s a trade-off between the cost of change, the ease of building, the ease of maintenance, the required performance, and probably many other important aspects. This is not about making one bowl of pasta, it’s about providing a good recipe to make many bowls of pasta, a recipe with a sauce that tastes good, has just the right stickiness to it, and changes depending on who is coming to dinner.*In other words, it’s about designing loosly coupled webservices with the help of contract first design. Of course with a reference to [Christian’s WSCF tool](http://www.thinktecture.com/Resources/Software/WSContractFirst/default.html). Hopefully the follow up articles will be posted soon, as I have a feeling some practical/hands-on experience will be in the articles, instead of some high-level bloating I am used to read.
