Thanks for the article!

This should be obvious since one cannot become a software architect with a musical background.

This comment just struck me as I know many software architects and amazing engineers with off-topic degrees and backgrounds.

For example Chad Fowler is someone I think would fall squarely into the 'Architect' role but has a degree in music! :)

 

Haha! Thanks! :) Sometimes things we try to show in examples might be inappropriate for some (really great) exceptions. Talking about the background I show the situation when the people from the other fields trying work in IT with no IT background. I could say medicine or art background instead of music, so this example has no purpose to offend musicians. And I'm pretty sure that a person you're talking about has also a degree in engineering (apart from music).
