In this chapter, we explored the key principles that outline the fundamental procedures and guidelines required to design, build, and deploy a software solution. Additionally, we learned about the essential UML diagrams with real examples to illustrate the different elements in each diagram, along with their benefits, and when to use each of them. Later in this chapter, we explored the process that is involved when constructing a solution architecture with UML.
In the next chapter, we will dig deep into the core architecture patterns. We will focus on the microservices architecture, and we will learn how to choose the right pattern for a specific solution.
