Software Architecture Courses & Workshops

Personalized Online Software Architecture Courses

Hello, hello! We have received a lot of messages asking if we are going to give presential workshops or courses in the upcoming months and therefore we decided to write a post answering all your questions. Also, in this article you will find options for personalized online software architecture courses and workshops.


Personalized Online Software Architecture Courses

First of all, this year we decided to make an emphasis on personalized courses and workshops for companies, aimed at satisfying the specific needs of each business. Here we offer 3 options: offline, online, hybrid option.

We offer practical, hands-on experience. Our tailor-made software architecture courses will perfectly fit your requirements. We design the material together so we can teach the tools, technology, architecture and processes of your current project. We tackle current issues and find optimized solutions following best practices, and you will be able to implement the acquired knowledge right away.

Since they’re tailor-made, these courses can be adapted in terms of schedule (half-day, executive, evenings or intensive)

These customized trainings can also be used to diagnose problems: when choosing the requirements of your personalized course, these can be complemented with Apiumhub’s consultancy services. By first detecting which are the real issues, the training can then focus in the causes more than the symptoms and be more effective.

Online Software Architecture Workshops with renowned experts

We offer practical, hands-on experience. We collaborate with leading software architects and influencers in the industry who can share valuable insights and help you apply theory into practice.

We regularly organize workshops with well known software architecture experts, such as:

She authored two popular object design books that are still in print. She was the design columnist for IEEE Software. You can find her design columns, papers, and writing at In her work, Rebecca’s helps teams and individuals hone their design and architecture skills, manage and reduce technical debt, refactor their designs, and address architecture risks. She also teaches and conducts workshops on design heuristics, agile design skills, system qualities, and a pragmatic approach to Agile Architecture. In her spare time she jogs (even in the rain). Rebecca is program director of the Agile Alliance’s Experience Report Initiative. She serves on the Board of the Hillside Group. Recently has written about the relationship between patterns and heuristics, architecture decision-making, and patterns for creating and managing magic backlogs.

So, let us share with you the online workshops options that we have so far:

  • Architecture: The Hard Parts
    2 x 4 hours remote workshop with Zhamak Dehghani, Neal Ford, and Mark RichardsThis hands-on, platform-agnostic architecture class goes beyond the fundamentals of software architecture and focuses on the really hard problems. This class focuses primarily on aspects of distributed architectures and on areas surrounding modularity versus granularity, the challenges of event-driven architectures (including difficult error handling issues), distributed architecture patterns and how to decouple services to achieve proper granularity.
  • Shortcut to Tech Leadership
    Online guided workshop with Patrick KuaThis is an online guided workshop that accelerates your tech leadership journey. This workshop will boost your skills, accelerate your career development, offer you tools and tricks to lead technical teams and guide you through the journey from maker to multiplier. Your trainer (Pat Kua) will guide you and your cohort through the workshop using a variety of methods optimised for a fully remote, digital world.
  • The Anatomy of a Deployment Pipeline
    Online guided workshop with Dave FarleyThe Deployment Pipeline organises all our software development efforts to go from “idea to valuable software in the hands of users.” This course explores the detail of implementation and CD practice for creating Deployment Pipelines.
  • DDD for Messaging Architectures
    6 x 4 hours remote workshop with Mathias Verraes and Thomas CoopmanDomain-Driven Design is exceptionally suitable for this: its fundamental principles are universal to software design, and apply well to all kinds of architectures: focus on domain language and collaborative modelling, Bounded Contexts, and mapping the relationships between Contexts.

    What has changed, are the techniques to achieve those goals. This workshop takes a highly practical approach to improve your toolkit for reasoning about message architectures.

  • Data Mesh: Domain-Oriented Data
