In this workshop you will create Software Architectures - as a focused practice. We will show you how to come up with an Architecture, what to focus on and what makes an Architecture great. It's an interactive workshop so you will also learn how to communicate your Architecture and finally how to deal with non-functional requirements.
The training is based on Katas - an old Japanese tradition of martial arts trainings. In a Kata certain moves are repeated over and over to really master them - and in this Workshop we will apply these principles to Software Architecture.
