Mitch Ruebush is starting a new User Group for Software Architects – The Philadelphia Chapter of IASA.  This is a great opportunity to learn and share with other Software Architects.  Everyone is welcome, so check it out. 

Here’s the text from an email he sent me:

You are invited to IASA – Philadelphia’s first meeting on February 6th,
2008 at the Microsoft Malvern office. We have set up an official IASA
Web site at to provide
more information on IASA and the Philly chapter. Please use this site to

What is Architecture?
Join us for a moderated discussion on the practicalities of what IT
architecture is. We will discuss what is the meaning of IT architecture,
roles and responsibilities, approaches to IT architecture, common
architecture processes and artifacts and what should be in the
architecture toolkit.
