The Architectural Magic Eight Ball

eight_ballEver been faced with one of those tricky design or architectural questions? Maybe the team is divided or a key decision maker is a seagull. But you need to move forward quickly.

Ladies and gentlemen… I give you the Architectural Magic Eight Ball, beloved by senior developers and architects everywhere. Solve those tricky religious debates instantly. ASP.NET MVC or WebForms? Solved. Which O/RM? Chosen in seconds. How should I distribute my application layers across tiers? Done!

This came up as part of a random hallway discussion today at p&p. Of course if it were this easy then we’d be out of a job. Might make good marketing swag though.

You could even build your own magic eight ball for your team.

Addendum: So I’m starting an (internal)¬†campaign to get these made. Maybe as swag for the p&p Summit or something. If you think they’d be cool and have any ideas for good eight ball answers then post a comment here.
