Registration for the next conference Software Architecture fwdays'23 conference is open!

Unfortunately, the number of seats is limited and all tickets have already been sold. But there is also good news: we are already planning to repeat the workshop. If you want to book a ticket for the same workshop, please fill out this form. As soon as we open sales - you will receive a message.

If you have ever asked yourself the following questions in your life:

  • What will be my role and what will be expected of me as an architect?
  • Why architecture for a product if you can go to code right away?
  • How to start developing architecture, what standards, methods and practices exist?
  • What should be included in the architectural documentation?
  • How to properly justify my chosen components, technologies and approaches?

Then this workshop is for you.

In the workshop you will be able to gain knowledge in the field of software architecture development; structure the already acquired knowledge; see where architecture begins, what approaches, standards and practices exist; gain practical skills from defining business goals of products and architectural drivers to developing architecture and architectural documentation.
