ADOK – Architecture Documentation

Record and communicate software architecture (2 days)

Trainer: Peter Götz

Learn how documenting software architecture changes from an annoying duty to an integral communication vehicle and tool for your work. Record influencing factors and central decisions for your architecture. Experience the emergence of comprehensible architecture.

In this workshop, you will work on selected parts of an architectural documentation and present your results to the group. Your trainer will guide you and provide you with practical feedback. Where possible, we will work on your projects.

The workshop is for software developers and architects who design and develop software solutions. You should already have gained practical experience in IT projects. Knowledge of a particular technology or programming language is not required. UML knowledge is an advantage but not required.

Agenda

  • Objectives and target groups of software architecture documentation
  • Overview of arc42 and its components’ relationship
  • Architecture-relevant requirements
  • Recording decisions and principles
  • Views and notation using UML and alternatives
  • Cross-cutting concerns
  • Documentation in the design phase vs. documentation afterwards
  • Selecting documentation components and deciding how deeply to describe them
  • Structuring documentation components in arc42
  • Peer reviewing documents
  • Documentation tools (e.g. Wikis, diagramming applications)

AWERT – Architecture Evaluation

Reflect and assess software architecture (2 days)

Trainer: Stefan Toth

Architecture evaluation is an essential tool for gaining confidence in architectural design and to improve existing solutions. Evaluations enable developers to verify architectural approaches – focused and sustained. Or to discard them well-informed. Above all, architecture evaluation encourages communication and transparency. Correctly applied, it therefore fits perfectly into modern development processes.

In this workshop you will learn how to use fundamental techniques and methods to reflect software architectures. You’ll conduct evaluation workshops in various roles and get valuable skills to implement evaluations in your own work.

The primary target groups are software architects and designers who are keen to understand architectural evaluation. Interested developers, for example from agile teams, and technical project managers will also find valuable inspiration. Basic knowledge of ​​architecture patterns and design principles as well as practical experience in software architecture and development are helpful.

Agenda

  • Objectives and benefits of architectural evaluations
  • Prerequisites for an architectural evaluation
  • Qualitative vs. quantitative assessment methods
  • Detect and address qualitative requirements
  • Describe and refine assessment attributes
  • ATAM – Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method
  • Preparing and conducting review workshops
  • Integrating evaluations methods in an existing process
  • Assessment of existing systems or parts of a system
  • Wrapping up an assessment and making use of evaluation results
