CNN recently rated software architect the number one job in America. Yet no clear path exists for moving from developer to architect. Neal Ford blends lecture and hands-on real-world group exercises to explore the many aspects of software architecture. You'll learn various integration styles (and when to use them) as well as patterns to fit various business needs and requirements.
