Learning Path: Software Architecture Fundamentals—Architecture Techniques

Software architecture encompasses a broad range of concepts and requires a true multidiscipline approach to planning and implementation. But there are essential basic practices that you need to know and apply to your designs. In this fourth in a series of six learning paths focused on software architecture fundamentals, your hosts, Neal Ford and Mark Richards, help you to explore the core techniques of being a software architect. You begin by looking at methods for architecture refactoring—making internal changes to your design without affecting its functionality. You then look at how to use checklists to make your teams more effective, how to interact with your project’s stakeholders and other architects, certification programs (and their pros and cons), and what Continuous Delivery (CD) means to you as an architect. Along the way, you'll learn important techniques for developing your career as an architect. As with every learning path in this series, you’ll use a real-world problem (called “katas,” or exercises) to assess your progress.
