Simon Brown's software architecture for developers
This course is about broadening your software development skills and has been designed to take full advantage of the technical knowledge that you already have. Simon Brown's software architecture development course will make you more 'architecturally aware', and will help you to build better software.

Uncle Bob's Advanced Test Driven Development
An intensely hands-on and exercise driven course that focuses on the design of clean, robust, and maintainable unit and acceptance tests. Students will learn the principles of test design, and the practices of keeping tests clean. More importantly, they will learn the principles of designing applications for testability. Exercises include the refactoring of bad tests, the writing of clean tests, and the design and refactoring of applications to make them testable.
This is a three-day hands-on course in which you will learn the principles and practices of test design and described in Robert C. Martin's book: Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices. You will also receive this book as part of the course materials.
Exercises are in Java, but are applicable to C#, C++, and other object oriented languages. Find out more here
Kevlin Henney & Jon Jagger's Deliberate Practice Days
How do you develop expertise? Peter Norvig writes: "The key is deliberative practice: not just doing it again and again, but challenging yourself with a task that is just beyond your current ability, trying it, analysing your performance while and after doing it, and correcting any mistakes. Then repeat. And repeat again." For a developer, deliberate practice means trying new things, trying old things with a view to making them fresh and trying to move from accidental practice to intentional discipline. Deliberate practice improves technical agility through increased self awareness. Find out more here
