Democratic Software Architecture – Sharing Technology Decisions
Do the teams you work on have an “elite few” that are looked to for making technology decisions?

Included are some tips I’ve found useful over my career to speed up the rate of adopting new technologies as part of your product’s stack – and making it everyone’s job.
