Can a developer become software architect?

What exactly is software architecture? Do we really need it? Why have we only recently been discussing it? Has some contagious fever suddenly infected those who claim to be architects? And who are these people anyway? Are they gurus, senior developers, or maybe just smooth-talking self-promoters?

These are questions that junior and senior developers are asking about software architecture and software architects. This article will address these questions and
more, asking the forbidden question: “Can a developer become software architect?”

Software Architecture: Past, Present and Future

Digital Photo Frame from is an online electronic store specializing in lcd digital photo frames. A digital photo frame is the modern day version of the regular framed photo.

Previously the only way you could view your photo’s is by printing them all off and storing in an album possibly looked at every few years, otherwise, you may bring out your PC and huddle family and friends around it while you open hundreds of files.

Digital Photo Frame is a new concept. All you need to do is simply take a photo or movie, switch your memory card to the digital picture frame and view.

All frames are compatible with JPEG, MP4, DivX, AVI, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, MP3, WMA, WAV formats. Besides your pictures, you can also view movie clips that have been taken with your camera, even play music in the background.

With the built-in stereo speakers, you don’t need any extra cables to plug an external speaker. However all products have 1/8” headphone out for more private use. The infrared remote control offers an easy access to the settings and preferences of your photos.

Now all your happy snaps will be constantly on display in all areas of your home, on the wall of your living room, at the entrance and on the side table in your bedroom on a fashionable, stylish digital photo frame.

Note: I haven’t tried the frames myself. This post was only meant for just introducing the digital photo frames idea. Please do your research before taking decisions.
