Buy tickets for the next conference Highload fwdays'24 conference!

Unfortunately, all tickets for this workshop have already been sold. But you can leave your request in the waiting list, and we will contact you first of all when we open the sale of tickets for a new workshop "Software Architecture Design Process".

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.

Target Audience:

This workshop is for:

  • software developers who want to understand process of software
  • architecture design, methods and principles;
  • architects who want to find new approaches and structure their knowledge;
  • Business and system analytics;
  • DevOps;
  • Delivery Managers;
  • anyone who wants to know what software architecture development is.

Required knowledges:

  • Experience with software development and software delivery.
  • Knowledge of Software Delivery Lifecycle (SDLC).
  • Basic knowledge of architectural patterns and styles (e.g. microservices, SOA).
  • Basic knowledge of architectural viewpoints (e.g. UML, C4, SEI V&B, etc.)
  • Engineering English (all materials and templates are in English).
