Attending the iSAQB® CPSA® Advanced Training in Web Architecture (WEB) – Who Should Take The Course and Why?
An Interview With Curator Till Schulte-Coerne
Which audience does the module WEB address?
The training course is meant for people who are looking for a somewhat broader overview of the huge subject that is “web”. The goal is to illuminate and classify as many existing standards as possible as well as different approaches to architectures on as many levels as possible – from the back end to the infrastructure to the fast-moving realm of the web front end.
How is the module relevant for the professional practice of software architects?
Modern architectures are usually web-based. Even if parts such as the client, for example, are not web-based, other parts such as APIs are usually web-based solutions. A deep understanding of the web is therefore essential for most software architects in their daily work in order to make the right decisions.
Which skills do software architects acquire from the module, what exactly do they learn in this training course?
Participants of the module will learn to classify different architecture approaches. The aim is to enable them to recognize alternatives when, for example, an existing approach is no longer viable. Furthermore, they should be able to participate in discussions on all levels of their architectures, no matter if it is about decisions in the RESTful HTTP API or about decisions regarding the architecture of the CSS code.
Why should (prospective) software architects participate in such a training course?
Nowadays, the web is almost always automatically the first choice, both for client implementations and for distributed systems in general. Even if no web technologies are to be used in the current day-to-day business, the question as to whether a web-based approach might be the right one will usually come up again with the next decision.
At the same time, many people’s understanding of the web is often biased in favor of a particular framework or technology. Especially in this day and age of fast-moving technologies and architecture approaches, the ability to quickly grasp new things and find one’s way around both the back end and the front end is important. This is exactly what the training course is supposed to teach both aspiring software architects and experienced veterans.
