Overview

This course is delivered by NUS-ISS.

IT professionals, who are NOT software architects, may have a need to analyse software architectures created by others.  For example, those who oversee IT outsourced projects may need to do at least some basic evaluation of the architectures submitted by vendors, or IT managers may need to evaluate the architectures submitted by their team members.

This compact course will help participants gain foundational skills to allow basic evaluation of software architecture.  The course covers foundational introduction of the following areas - architectural qualities, principles, styles, components with focus on current architectural styles such as cloud native, microservices-driven and container architecture, polyglot persistence and leveraging on devops automation practices.

By combining lectures with scenario-based workshop, the course prepares the mindset of participants to understand and carry out basic evaluation of proposed software architectures.

Key Takeaways

At the end of the programme, you will be able to:
  • Understand the key quality standards and tactics to evaluate an architecture
  • Understand the purpose of key architecture components and considerations of common integration options
  • Appreciate the main development and design practices involved in building of the cloud native applications
  • Discover the key benefits and trade-offs of monoliths, serverless and microservices application architecture
  • Understand appropriate use of polyglot persistence modelling
  • Understand architecturally significant influences that cater to system scaling
  • Understand DevOps and deployment pipelines
  • Appreciate architecture debt
  • Apply the above in basic evaluation of software architectures
