Solution Architecture Coaching & Training

Virtual or In-person Setup

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


The legacy monolithic architecture style is not a match for the current and future modern applications' requirements and use cases such as Mobile-ready, near real-time personalization, IoT, AI/ML applications, significant increase in load volumes, and the urgent need for faster time to market. The Modern era Solution Architect must learn how to design Distributed, Future-Proof, Elastic, Cloud-Native, Responsive and resilient systems.


  • 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
  • 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
