Workshops for Software Developers & Architects

The Modern Application Architecture Workshop (MAA)


Learn how to design & build large-scale, distributed, Cloud-Native, flexible, responsive, resilient (self-healing), elastic & cost effective systems faster than the competition


Companies are investing heavily in Modern Application Architecture and Cloud-Native Architecture to survive and gain digital advantage by accelerating digital transformation. You can use MAA to build elastic, responsive and resilient solutions that fit in Cloud-Native infrastructure quickly and faster than the competition. The skills associated with those methodologies are in high demand. However, there’s a steep learning curve associated with those technologies. Our Modern Application Architecture (MAA) workshop is designed to eliminate that steep learning curve. The workshop is covering both the conceptual and the hands-on aspects of Reactive Architecture and Cloud-Native Architecture. The Workshop is utilized by some of the largest Software Development companies in the world. This is a hands-on, 2 days corporate workshop that is tailored for corporate clients.


  • Learn how the Reactive Architecture approach can help you design and build more responsive, flexible, cost effective, resilient (self-healing) and elastic systems faster than the competition.
  • Learn how to build Cloud-Native reference architecture, using modern tools and technologies such as Kubernetes, Akka, Akka Cluster, Play Framework and more.

Workshop Description

  • This is a hands-on Workshop where the participants collaborate to create a solution for an exciting modern-era business use-case. The Coach will share real-life experience and teach you the modern era architecture techniques and methods that used by the CTOs to build large-scale systems. Such Architecture that is adapted and utilized by the likes of Starbucks, CapitalOne and LinkedIn. The labs on the second day require the knowledge of Java programming.


  • Architects, Software Developers & Engineers and Technical Managers are looking for a better approach to build responsive, resilient and elastic solutions.

Workshop Setup

Day One

  • Reactive design patterns and the applicable solution requirements, DDD, message driven architecture, the Actor model, self-healing, CQRS, Command/Event-sourcing, Eventual Consistency and Distributed Saga
  • Design a solution architecture for a modern business use case

Day Two

  • Build Cloud-native system that implements the solution architecture design that was created in day one in AWS setup
  • The Cloud-Native Reference architecture is built using Kubernetes, Akka, Play!, Kafka and PostgreSql


  • Familiarity with Software Architecture
  • Familiarity with the Java programming language
  • A machine with access to install RC client, MiniShift, local PostgreSql and Kafka
