Antifragile, Architecture, ComplexityAntifragile Architecture – Microsoft Azure

Make your system Antifragile

The course will provide you with a clearer understanding of how to use simple (but powerful) techniques to build, clarify and validate your own architectural ideas, no matter how fuzzy or unsure they might already be.

This is a four day course that will give a solid foundation to Architects charged with building complex systems in the cloud. The course gives a new perspective and helps the Architect contribute effectively, even in agile scenarios, with concrete tools and techniques.  

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 10 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 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 it can contribute to the challenges faced by organisations today. This can result in a revitalized and more purposeful Architect team. 

  • The course will provide you
  • Tools and techniques to help manage 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 

Antifragile – Designing the Systems of the Future

Based loosely on the book ‘Anti-fragile’ by Nicholas Nassim Taleb, we look at how his theories on fragility and the ability to withstand shocks can be interpreted to help us design, produce, and manage better systems that can help us deal not only with failures, but also with rapidly changing markets and expectations in modern software development.

Software Engineering Radio

Listen Barry O'Reilly in the Software Engineering Radio - the postcast for professional software developers.

Barry O’Reilly of Black Tulip Technology discusses Antifragile Architecture, an approach for designing systems that actually improve in the face of complexity and disorder. Host Jeff Doolittle spoke with O’Reilly about the characteristics of antifragility and the nature of complexity in software systems and business environments. Various processes and practices were discussed for applying the principles of Antifragile Architecture.
