Study Notes

Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

  • SDLC is used to plan, design, build, test, and deliver software products

Design Phase

  • In the design phase, the system design and architecture are defined and documented

Software Architecture

  • Software architecture involves designing the overall structure and behavior of a software system
  • Architecture has a significant impact on the final product, influencing its quality, scalability, and maintainability
  • Software architecture serves as a blueprint for the system, providing a roadmap for development and implementation

Technical Architecture Partitioning

  • Components are organized into layers or tiers, each with specific responsibilities and interactions

Event-Driven Architecture

  • An event handler component triggers asynchronous events and responds to asynchronous events happening in the system

Microservices Architecture

  • Microservices use a bounded context, which means each service has its own database and is loosely coupled with other services
  • Characteristics of microservices include autonomous development, testing, and deployment

API Gateway

  • The primary role of an API gateway is to act as an entry point for clients, routing requests to appropriate microservices

Software Architect Role

  • A primary responsibility of a Software Architect is to make strategic technical decisions
  • A Software Architect is NOT responsible for individual contributor tasks, such as coding or testing

Enterprise Architecture

  • The main focus of Enterprise Architecture is to align business strategy with IT infrastructure and systems

Skills for Software Architects

  • Technical skills essential for a Software Architect include requirements elicitation, which involves identifying and documenting software requirements

Requirements Elicitation

  • Requirements elicitation refers to the process of identifying and documenting software requirements from stakeholders
