Architecture for Agile Projects Training

3 days


This course starts with the story of how Agile arose to set the stage for understanding the motivation behind its growing popularity. It then walks through the details of what is affected by doing Agile and who is involved with a focus on the role of the architect. From conception to production and onto retirement, the course provides guidance as to what an architect is required to do at each step to ensure Agile projects are supported by robust and flexible architecture. It is a mixture of lectures and exercises providing opportunities to learn the concepts and How-to apply them in the real world.
