As Youtube is one of the most preferred channels nowadays, we decided to create a list of our favourite software architecture youtube channels that we believe will inspire you. These youtube channels are managed by leading software architects who have written software architecture books and who regularly participate in international conferences and who give hands-on workshops.

Software Architecture Youtube Channels to Follow

 

  1. Mark Richards

This is one of our most favorite youtube channels. We met Mark in Global Software Architecture Summit where he gave his talk on “Architectural Thinking” and where we understood how good he is in software architecture. 

Mark came up with an excellent initiative called “Software Architecture Monday” which is  is a free bi-weekly video lesson series on some aspect of software architecture. These 10 minute YouTube videos contain various aspects of application, integration, and enterprise architecture. 

These are the videos he would recommend watching during the journey from developer to software architect.

I am pretty sure you know him, but in case you don’t, let me tell you a little bit more about Mark Richards. Mark is an experienced, hands-on software architect involved in the architecture, design, and implementation of microservices architectures, service-oriented architectures, and distributed systems.
