Voxxed have just published a short interview with me about software architecture, sketches, agile and my "Software Architecture for Developers" training course on Parleys where I answer the following questions:
- You're an independent consultant - have your experiences in this (sometimes challenging) field fed into your course?
- Who is your course aimed at? How experienced do people need to be?
- Do you think a good grasp of agile methodology is important for this course?
- Can you give us an example of the kind of sketch you'd use to visualize your architecture?
- What's wrong with many of the software architecture sketches that you see?
- Diagrams that don't reflect the code - why is this a problem?
- A recent article suggested young developers should avoid the agile manifesto - what's your take on this?
You can read the full interview on Voxxed and, this week, the first 100 people to sign-up to my Parleys course using this link will get a 20% discount.
