Clean Architecture: A Craftsman's Guide to Software Structure and Design
By Robert C. Martin
The basic book. You will learn the rules, how to identify architectural smells and lean why the ARCHITECTURE MUST SCREAM. Oh, I forgot. It also shows why architects need to code.
A software architect's job is to leave the options open. Leave the decision on the details to others.
The database is a detail, the framework is a detail and the UI is a detail too.
