Apply your software design skills to deliver real requests.

In these workshops you will learn how - without bad IFs - to solve design problems related to complexity, growth and change.

Code Monsters? No thanks!

About these workshops

  • These Workshops are 100% hands-on. Participants are given a series of real customer requests to be delivered in 3.5 hours. Customer requests involve solving a variety of design challenges. Participants individually develop their own solutions in their preferred language and IDE. When they want to, they can show their code/solution in one-to-one sessions with Francesco. Francesco takes snapshots of the participants' code which he shows and comments with all participants every 3 pomodori.
