IDesign principal Juval Lowy conducts this unique opportunity for the professional architect, mastering the skills and techniques required of today’s modern software architects.
While many developers and managers have a clear idea regarding the characteristics, practices, and corresponding set of responsibilities of their roles, the picture is often vague when it comes to software architects. What is the single most important task facing the software architect? What is the division of labor and responsibilities between the architect and the project manager? How much the architecture should be tied in to the particulars of the underlying technology used, or for that matter, for the specifics of the business? Where is the hand-off point between the architect and the developers? What are the necessary skills and analysis tools employed by an architect? How do you validate the design before construction begins? How do methodologies such as service-orientation affect the design and development process? What are software architecture's best practices, guidelines and pitfalls? How do you go about designing world-class systems? How do you make the transition from abstract design patterns and concepts to concrete development decisions? How does the architect decompose the system into its sub system and modules?
IDesign's flagship offering, the Architect’s Master Class, is the ultimate resource for the professional architect.
