Old thread I know, but for the interested Brandon Rhodes' 'Clean Architecture' talk can be found at http://youtu.be/DJtef410XaM

Matt O'Donnell was also there, and he's done a talk on this sort of thing recently too (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGhL7IA6Dik). It's definitely in the air.
> My own modest attempts to approach the subject are in my book -- in chapter 19, where I show how striving for test isolation can (theoretically) push you towards something like a lean architecture (http://chimera.labs.oreilly.com/books/1234000000754/ch19.html) and in chapter 21, the wrap-up, where I waffle on about all these things (http://chimera.labs.oreilly.com/books/1234000000754/ch22.html)
> I don't think I managed to broach the subject nearly as cleanly as Brandon did. I really admire his talks. His data structures talk was one of the top 3 I saw at Pycon this year (http://pyvideo.org/video/2571/all-your-ducks-in-a-row-data-structures-in-the-s). Perfect pace, slides that complement rather than repeat the talk, fascinating and useful content...
> Anyways, back to our onions - I guess the thing that's always bothered me a bit about the "clean architecture" is that my main project (pythonanywhere) is "all boundaries", to use Gary Bernhardt's terminology. Or, to put it differently, I don't think we really have much in the way of "business logic". We just turn Http requests into commands that go to processes. There's really not much in the way of "logic" in the way. No calculations or business rules to speak of. So it's never seemed worth it, to us.
> And sometimes I think -- aren't many web projects just thin CRUD wrappers around a database? Is going to all the trouble of isolating your business logic from, eg, django, really worth it in most cases?
