Description

The Foundations of Software Architecture

In this training, you will learn how to create a good software architecture that can last for a long time because it adapts to change. Your trainer will give you helpful advice from practice and you will work on exercises that will give you a “Eureka!” moment. You will learn what drives the design of software, how to create a good structure for your software system, and how to evaluate different solutions. You will also get direct feedback from your trainer and be able to talk with other people in the training about your experiences. This training will teach you how to design software architectures in an exciting and engaging way and prepare you for successful certification.

Agenda

  • Introduction and motivation: learn what software architecture is about
  • Contemporary approach: create an architecture incremental and iteratively
  • Context diagram: scope down the solution
  • Influences: identify quality goals and constraints
  • Big picture: learn architecture styles, patterns, and principles
  • Design structures: find modules and interfaces
  • Alternative solutions: make architectural decisions
  • Concepts: address cross-cutting concerns
  • Documentation: document your software architecture efficiently
  • Evaluation: assess your solutions
