This was the perfect format for me, I needed a refresher on Solution Architecture principles. George was very knowledgeable & I learned a lot. Thank you George for your templates & advice.

- Good tie-in with TOGAF and other known frameworks and methodologies - Excellent real-world examples to give more context behind theory elements - Provided take-home SA resources that are valuable for the workplace - Pragmatic approach to teaching
(4.40 out of 5) DAVID A [ 24 July, 2017 ]
Course confirmed and reinforced understanding of the "soft skillS" orientation of the Solutions Architecture role, and importantly confirmed that originally the role was known as Systems Analysis, which I was taught in my undergraduate Computer Science degree many years ago. This helps greatly with understanding which skills I already possess, which to develop and how to position them in the SA role going forward.

Extremely insightful content!! Valuable industry experience sharing by George which i think i will be using back at work. The concepts were explained with real life examples.
