Choosing The Right Architecture

Format: Live Virtual Training
Duration: Half-Day Workshop
Instructor: Mark Richards

Whether starting a new greenfield application or analyzing the vitality of an existing application, one of the decisions an architect must make is which architecture style to use (or to refactor to). Microservices? Service-Based? Microkernel? Pipeline? Layered? Space-Based? Event-Driven? SOA?. Having the right architecture style in place is essential to the success of any application, big or small. Come to this fast-paced 1/2 day live, virtual hands-on workshop to learn how to analyze your requirements to make the right choice about which architecture style is right for your situation.
