NEAL FORD: Hands-on Software Architecture Fundamentals

September 21, 2017 | Golden Tulip Ana Dome


Hands-on Software Architecture Fundamentals, Neal Ford

ThoughtWorker | Software Architect | Meme Wrangler | Software Consultant | Speaker | Writer

One of the primary skills an architect must have is the ability to create, document, and communicate software architectures. Unfortunately, too many architects lack proficiency in this skill, ultimately resulting in applications that don’t meet the needs of the business.

This hands-on architecture workshop starts you with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively create, document, and present software architectures. Through interactive course materials and architecture exercises, this course teaches how to analyze your business and technical needs, select the right architecture style and pattern, define architectural components, and effectively diagram and document your software architecture.

You learn how to identify key architectural characteristics that shape your software architecture. Using those characteristics, you then learn how to analyze and use various architecture patterns and styles to make intelligent choices to determine which architecture style best suits your particular needs.

While knowing what architecture pattern best fits your situation is critical to the success of your architecture, that is only the start. Creating an architecture is also about the ability to identify and define architectural components–the building blocks of any software architecture. In this workshop you also learn how to identify architectural components and iteratively refine the granularity of those components.

This workshop is designed to be technology-agnostic, so all of the materials presented apply to any platform or language.
