01. - 03.12.2020 Hotel Krone Unterstrass, Zürich

The accredited iSAQB® Certified Professional for Software Architecture Foundation (CPSA-Foundation) training course provides the knowledge and skills to design, communicate, evaluate, maintain, and enhance software architectures based on customer requirements and constraints.

This accredited CPSA Foundation training course is based on the current ISAQB® syllabus and the corresponding certification examination. The CPSA Foundation training course provides the knowledge to successfully pass the internationally recognized iSAQB certification for software architecture.

The seminar has a workshop character with time for exchange ideas between participants as well as implement a software architecture design based on a real case study. Participants receive an interactive four-day training course with practical exercises and case studies that reinforce what they have learned.

Participants will expand their existing experience and skills in software development in the areas of design principles, patterns, and tactics to fulfill specific quality requirements. 

An additional focus on non-technical aspects of software architecture reflects the real-world challenges, e.g. communication with stakeholders, clarification of architecturally relevant requirements, etc.

  • Definitions, benefits and goals of software architecture
  • The tasks and responsibilities of software architects
  • Stakeholder concerns and interaction
  • Functional and quality requirements, and other factors influencing software architecture design
  • Tactics and heuristics for architectural development, e.g. architectural and design patterns, design principles, cross-cutting concerns etc.
  • Documentation of software architectures on the basis of views
