Short Bio

Gernot Starke, INNOQ Fellow, once studied computer science because he found programming cool and inter­esting. He still loves coding and the challenges of modern software systems. He is a co-founder of iSAQB and has been leading the „Foundation Level“ working group  for more than 5 years. In addition, he is also the co-founder of the two open-source architecture method­ology projects arc42 and aim42.

In his day-to-day life, Gernot consults companies from various sectors on systematic software engineering and devel­opment, with a focus on software architecture. He regularly conducts training courses on architecture and related topics.

The first edition of his (German) book „Effektive Softwarearchitek­turen“ was published in 2001 and has been contin­u­ously updated since – the latest (9th) edition was published in 2020.

Together with Alexander Lorz, he created the (English) „Software Architecture Foundation – CPSA‑F Exam Study Guide“, published by VanHaaren Inter­na­tional – the only book that explains all the 40 CPSA‑F learning goals individually.
