Online training now available via Parleys

As announced during the opening keynote at Devoxx Belgium this morning, I'm delighted to say that Software Architecture for Developers is now available as an online/video training course via Parleys.

The online course includes the same content as the regular on-site 2-day version, with the exception of the hands-on software design and sketching exercises. From the course overview page...

A lightweight approach to software architecture is pivotal to successfully delivering software, and it can complement agile approaches rather than compete against them. After all, a good architecture enables agility and this doesn't happen by magic. "Software Architecture for Developers" is a practical and pragmatic guide to lightweight software architecture. You'll learn:


  • The essence of software architecture.
  • Why the software architecture role should include coding, coaching and collaboration.
  • The things that you *really* need to think about before coding.
  • How to visualise your software architecture using simple sketches.
  • A lightweight approach to documenting your software.
  • Why there is *no* conflict between agile and architecture.
  • What "just enough" up front design means.
  • How to identify risks with risk-storming.

I'm excited to be working with Parleys on this and I think they have an amazing platform for delivering online training. If you're thinking about creating an online course, I recommend taking a look at Parleys. The tooling behind the scenes used to put the course together is incredible. Many thanks to Carlo Waelens and the Parleys team for everything over the past few months - I hope this is the start of something big for you.
