Flexible Architectures: Microservices, Self-contained Systems and Continuous Delivery with Eberhard Wolff & Niko Will

  3 days


Software requirements are changing faster and faster — the architecture must adapt to this. This training teaches pragmatic and modern approaches for flexible software architectures such as microservices and self-contained systems.

Domain-Driven Design and the closely related Strategic Design show how bounded context and context maps can be used to divide large applications into long-term maintainable functionalities.

According to Conway’s Law, the organization is closely linked to the architecture and can contribute to flexibility. Another influencing factor is Continuous Delivery: It brings software into production faster and more reliably, but this is only possible with good modularization aligned with it.

Flexible Architectures with Eberhard Wolff & Niko Will

Continuous delivery also provides new tools for architects: Infrastructures such as IaaS, PaaS and virtualization open up entirely different ways to make software more flexible. Metrics and logging can be used to feed more information into architecture work.

This course will be offered virtually over 3 full‑day sessions of 8 hours each (including 2 hour break).

This course is a live, real-time workshop offered in an intimate virtual classroom — where you will learn directly from Eberhard and Niko.

There will be plenty of time to ask questions, dig into the concepts and ensure you're learning skills that are relevant to your architecture projects.

This class utilises Zoom, Miro, and Google Docs.

This training teaches pragmatic and modern approaches for building flexible software architectures like microservices and self-contained systems.

The seminar teaches how these modern concepts can be used in practice beyond the hype and with which architecture options and decision alternatives they can be adapted. Participants work through the approaches in practice using a case study. The principles taught are independent of programming language or platform.
