iSAQB® CPSA Advanced Funktional Software Architecture (FUNAR)

Course Description

This accredited iSAQB training course presents functional software architecture as an alternative to object-oriented (OO) architecture to the course participants. Compared to OO architecture, functional software architecture relies on immutable data, algebraic abstractions and embedded domain-specific languages. The results are flexible and robust architectures that are less complex and have less hidden dependencies compared to OO.

Because of the increased expressiveness and abstraction possibilities in functional languages, architecture is code. The training includes hands-on exercises and an introduction to Haskell.

Previous knowledge in functional programming is helpful but not necessary. Those who are not familiar with programming with functional languages or would like to enjoy a short refresher course should attend the one-day optional preliminary course.

Course content

The accredited training course is part of the Advanced Level of the iSAQB certification for software architects (CPSA-A) and is based on the corresponding iSAQB “FUNAR” curriculum.

Preliminary Course Content (1 day)

The preliminary course is a compact introduction to functional programming for participants who have no experience in this area or who would like a refresher course. The preliminary course includes hands-on programming exercises. The preliminary course uses the proven didactic methodology of the “DeinProgramm” construction manuals (https://www.deinprogramm.de).

Primary Course Content (3 days)

  • Structure of functional software systems: functions and values, composition, etc,
  • Technologies for functional programming: static types, dynamic types, etc.
  • Implementation of functional requirements
  • Implementation of non-functional requirements
  • Architecture Patterns
  • Practical examples

Target Audience

This course is aimed at software developers and architects

Prerequisites

Experience in software development with focus on functional programming is recommended.

Certification

This training course is part of the Advanced Level Program of iSAQB. By attending this training course, you will receive 10 credit points in the “Methodology” competency area and 20 credit points in the “Technical” competency area, which can be credited towards obtaining a Certified Professional Software Architect (CPSA) certificate.

Detailed course content

This accredited training is based on the current ISAQB® syllabus for the iSAQB module FUNAR.

Preliminary Course Content (1 day)

The preliminary course is a compact introduction to functional programming for participants who have no experience in this area or who would like a refresher course. The preliminary course includes hands-on programming exercises. The preliminary course uses the proven didactic methodology of the “DeinProgramm” construction manuals (https://www.deinprogramm.de).

    • The theoretical content is supplemented with the trainer's practical experience to ensure course participants not only understand the relevant methods, but also the real-world challenges of their implementation.
    • Active participation and discussions are explicitly encouraged.
  • Industry-standard certifications:
    • Industry-standard certification and recognition of expertise.
  • Two free coaching sessions*:
    • Participants receive two coaching sessions free of charge (value of 300€) to support them in successfully implementing newly learned methods and approaches in their current business projects.

Benefits of the Albion live online training courses

Overview

Albion is known for its interactive training courses with a workshop character. This also applies to Albion's live online training courses, which encourage the active participation of course participants in discussions and group exercises.

By using the latest online collaboration tools, such as online whiteboards, you will experience a classroom-like participation. During the live online training, participants collaborate to perform practice-oriented exercises and case studies that lead to a deeper understanding of the course material.

Online Whiteboard

Benefits of live online training courses

  • Lower price
    • Lower price for the live online training course compared to the corresponding classroom training.
  • No travel or hotel costs
    • Efficient use of your time and money.
  • Compliance with mandated travel restrictions
    • You can conveniently participate from any location without having to travel.
  • Face-to-face discussions
    • The same opportunities for asking questions and discussing topics as in a classroom training.
    • As with classroom training, the active participation of the participants is desired.
  • Participant collaboration
    • Participants can pose questions to other participants and to the trainer 24 hours a day via an online chat during and after the course (e.g., to discuss sample test questions, current project challenges, etc.).

Prerequisites for live online training courses

  • Computer with a stable and fast Internet connection that supports continual video transmission
  • Suitable webcam
  • Headset instead of the laptop microphone to reduce ambient noise and to avoid echos
  • Modern web browser with good Javascript support (Chrome or Firefox preferred)
  • A sufficiently large monitor to view the course slides, a whiteboard, and other participants
  • Only one person per computer, no sharing computers
  • Optional: A touchscreen and pen to interact more fluidly, for example, to draw on a virtual whiteboard
  • Optional: Administration rights to be able to install software, e.g., Microsoft Team
  • The applications are also available via a web browser; however, these have limited functionality
