In 2016 I worked in San Francisco as SVP of Engineering for a company in the solar industry. It was tons of fun, and I learned a lot about how American companies do business in Silicon Valley.
We set out on an ambitious plan to introduce AI in the solar power industry. We rolled out an architecture that could support the entire sales process, from the initial customer contact to having panels on the roof. We hosted everything on Microsoft Azure and crossed all the classic architecture boxes: a layered service-oriented architecture, REST-based, with a message queue for asynchronous API calls, and a component-based design for easy upgradability.
Designing complex system architectures is not as hard as it seems, and in this course I’ll walk you through the entire process. We will not only focus on architecture design patterns, but also on soft skills. Which traits do executives love to see in the architects they work with? What extra responsibilities can an architect take on in a project to really make a difference?
