Description

AwA Feedback Top Banner

Embracing agile development doesn’t mean forgoing architecture. Whether accidental or intentional, every system has an architecture regardless of whether it was put in place by a nominated architect or if it emerged from the decisions of a team. 

All too often the focus of architecture is centred on a specific set of platform technologies. This focus can be dangerous as it does not highlight all the concerns an architecture should address. Moreover, it addresses only one aspect of the skill set an architect should possess.

What you will learn: 
• The relationship between development process and architecture 
• The roles and failure modes of testing, modelling and technology platforms 
• Different architectural styles and design patterns 
• How to transform product vision into architecture 
• Future-proofing your architecture, and accounting for uncertainty 
• How to ground your architecture and avoid overdesign

The course covers a wide range of topics through a number of practical exercises, with plenty of time dedicated to group discussion.
