Congratulations! You're going to be a Great Software Architect!

Software Architects have one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs in the industry.

Great salary, working with management, dealing with the up-to-date technologies and patterns, working with variety of projects and teams - all these make the Software Architect one of the most desired positions in the software industry.

Becoming a Software Architect is not easy. but becoming a Great Software Architect is even harder.

One of the best methods to become a great Software Architect is to always learn, and see what other architects did in their own work.

And this is exactly what this course is doing.

In this course we're going to discuss 4 case studies, based on a real-world, production based systems, that I've worked on in recent years.

Each case study presents a unique challenge, with a lot of twists in the way, and together - we're going to design the architecture of each and every one of them.

The case studies are varied, and we'll discuss classic web app (but with a very interesting twist...), file automation system, and more.

For each case study, we're going to go through the whole architecture process, and do the following:

- Map the components

- Understand the requirements

- Define the application type

- Select the technology stack

- Design the architecture

- Add redundancy

Our technology stack is also extremely diverse, and we're going to talk about:

- .NET Core

- SQL Server

- Java

- MongoDB


And more...

Important Note: This course builds on the foundations laid in The Complete Guide to Becoming a Software Architect course, and uses some concepts taught in it (mainly the architecture process). It is highly recommended, though not mandatory, to to take this course before this one.

But wait, that's not all!

One of the most important product of the architect's work are the architecture diagrams. These diagrams are the epitome of the architecture process, and summarize and represent the various aspects of the architecture.

In this course, we're going to have 3 architecture diagrams for each case study:

1. Logic Diagram

2. Technical Diagram

3. Physical Diagram

These diagrams shows the various aspects of the architecture, and are an essential part of the architect's work.

And the good part?

You can download these diagrams for your own use. These diagrams are a great starter for architecture diagrams, and there's a good chance your own system is quite similar to at least one of the case studies in this course. And even if not - you can still use it as a base for your own. Simply put - it's yours to use.

This course is the only course that gives you access to real-world, production based architectures, based on systems designed by real architects, developed by real developers, and have millions of $ invested in them. Don't miss this opportunity!


What do my students have to say about my courses?


"well done - The course was very practical" - Sam

"[The course] given me the confidence to go out to the market and advertise myself as such [an Architect]" - Mathew

"Life Changing" - Arivazhagan

And lots more...


Who is this course for?


Actually, any person who is involved in software development, even system analyst, can profit from this course.

However, the best candidate for this course is a Software Architect that wants to expand her knowledge, or a developer with some experience, preferably 2 years. This experience will help mainly in understanding the terminology used in this course.

If you're not sure if this course is for you - drop me a note!
