Course Title
Evolutionary Architecture and Design

Big Up-front Design is a bad idea, as an industry we've learned the consequence of this over the past few decades. Creating design just in time can be a disaster as well. The risk is creating a design that is not extensible and a software system that can get quite hard to evolve and maintain. This is where the principles and the practices we can learn and follow for evolutionary architecture and design come in. This course will help us avoid the perils of up-front design, and at the same time, keep us away from the traps of inadequate or insufficient design. Learn how to create practical design that can efficiently balance the tradeoffs we face in architecting and designing software.
