Pragmatic, effective Software Architectures

3 day introductory training developed by Peter Hruschka and Gernot Starke

You can expect..

a solid, practical and pragmatic introduction to architecture with lots of exercises. You will learn and practise the different tasks of software archtects using an extensive case study. The focus is on a methodical and systematic approach to architectural design and evaluation. You will receive concrete tips on how to proceed in development projects, supported with practical examples.

In short (for more info see below)

  • Roles and tasks
  • Agility and architecture
  • Setting the scope and external interfaces
  • Design Methods (Domain Driven Design, Quality Driven Architecture, …)
  • Architectural Views
  • Architecture Patterns
  • Documentation of Architectures
  • Analyzing and evaluating architeftures

Target Audience

This course is primarily for developers an architects that want to understand the role “software architect” and learn about their tasks and skills.

If you are project manager, product manager, product owner or Scrum coach? You will get an easy to understand introduction to software architecture so that you and your development teams will be able to communicate in a common language.
