Architecture Clinic

IDesign's architecture clinic instructs how to quickly, effectively, and correctly create high-quality system architectures using the IDesign Method, along with obtaining practical experience through a comprehensive hands-on approach. The clinic combines elements of instruction and guidance, teamwork, peer-critiqued, and an IDesign architect review, which allows participants to depart not only with the architecture and design diagrams for their particular system, but also with expertise that would otherwise take years of on-the-job-experience to obtain, covering both architecture and soft skills.

The Architecture Clinic

The architecture clinic is designed to guide and accelerate your exposure to the practices of modern software design. It is a five day highly interactive event where you will learn, improve, and exercise software architecture skills. During the clinic, you will architect several systems, most of them based on real-world problems brought in by the clinic’s participants (and you may offer a system for the teams to work on as well, which could be a nice side benefit). Through guided practice, you will exercise the IDesign Method and become proficient at it - the clinic is run by an IDesign master architect who will teach you the thought process and the rationale behind the design decisions. Along the way we will walk you through the steps of the IDesign Method, share insight and best practices, and also help develop the “soft skills” that are so important to success such as customer interview and design review presentation. In normal day-to-day work, this type of knowledge and insight can take many years to attain. The clinic will shorten your learning curve through our years of deep industry experience, and provide a perfect forum for focused, high caliber discussions and mentorship.
