This is a four day course that will give a solid foundation for architects building complex distributed systems in the cloud. The course teaches architecture through a new, ground breaking approach based on residuality theory that sees architecture as a science, providing a solid theoretical background for advanced decision making. The course gives a new perspective on architecture, with concrete tools and techniques, and a lightening fast catch-up on cloud that will put architects ahead of the competition.
Many Architects feel left behind when it comes to cloud. Modern systems are experiencing massive increases in complexity. Together with constantly evolving cloud platforms, products, and the pressures brought about by digitalization, it is getting harder and harder to deliver consistently. The course helps answer these challenges with a series of proven tools and techniques that have been honed over the last 12 years, with real world exercises and an aim to lift the Architect’s contribution to a new level.
The course aims to provide the tools for architects to quickly embrace cloud technology to deliver modern solutions, which will lead to simpler, faster deliveries, with better quality. More importantly, the course will provide a new vision of what architecture is and how in can contribute to the challenges faced by organisations today.
The course will provide you
- Tools and techniques to help navigate complexity in modern distributed systems
- a quickstart in effective cloud architecture
- a new way to think about architecture and the architect’s role in the age of digitalisation
- Solution architects
- Enterprise architects
Program day 1–4
The course introduces residuality theory, at the cutting edge of architecture research. This is based on Complexity Science and Systems Engineering concepts, and shows how these can be woven in to the architect’s design process to design and build better systems.

- What is Residuality Theory?
- The Philosophy of Residuality Theory
- What problem are we trying to solve?
- Complexity and Uncertainty in software
- Resilience and antifragility
Day 2 – Introduction to Cloud
- How to learn in ’The Cloud’
- Distributed systems
- Coupling and design decisions
- Important components
- Choosing components
Day 3 – Residuality and Design in the Cloud
- Stressor analysis
