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), the SEI Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM), and several lightweight evaluation techniques. Through multiple exercises, participants get a chance to apply these methods to sample problems.
This course is based on the books Designing Software Architectures: A Practical Approach and Software Architecture in Practice, 3rd edition.
The prerequisite for this course is the Software Architecture: Principles and Practices course, which is available as instructor-led classroom training and as eLearning.
