Two-Day Advanced Training

Michael Nygard demonstrates how to design and architect systems that admit change—bending and flexing through time. Using a blend of information architecture, technical architecture, and some process change, Michael walks you through examples of rigid systems to show how to transform them into more maneuverable architecture.

Architect @Cognitect & Author of the Best Seller "Release It!"

This intensive, two-day, hands-on workshop teaches you DDD within an explicitly event-oriented microservices business domain. You will learn both strategic and tactical design. This workshop is specially designed for mid-level and senior software developers and architects who are interested in applying event-driven and microservices architectures using DDD.
