Reference Architecture & Frameworks: A Consolidation

Another lesson by Sameer Paradkar


Reference architectures are standardized architectures that provide a frame of reference for a vertical domain or sector. Reference models or architectures provide a common vocabulary, reusable designs, and industry best practices.
