with David Blank-Edelman

Are architects made or grown? Do you cross some sort of threshold and become an architect officially? Do you have to be recognized by others to bear the title? Maybe you are one already? What are some characteristics of a good architect? In this episode of the #AzureEnablementShow, David asks these questions and more with our #ArmchairArchitects, Uli and Eric.
