A system's software architecture is widely regarded as one of the most important software artifacts. Software professionals routinely make decisions that impact that architecture, yet many times that impact is not fully considered or well understood.
This two-day course provides in-depth coverage of the concepts needed to effectively design and analyze a software architecture. The essential considerations for defining any architecture are carefully examined and then illustrated through application of the SEI Attribute-Driven Design (ADD) software architecture design method. This course also explores architecture analysis in-depth and introduces the SEI Quality Attribute Workshop (QAW) and the SEI Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM). Through multiple exercises, participants study an application of these methods and get a chance to apply them to sample problems.
This course is based on the books Software Architecture in Practice, 2nd Edition and Evaluating Software Architectures: Methods and Case Studies.
The prerequisite for this course is the Software Architecture: Principles and Practices course, which is available as instructor-led classroom training and as eLearning.
