The way that software components — subroutines, classes, functions, etc. — are arranged, and the interactions between them, is called architecture. In this course you will study the ways these architectures are represented, both in UML and other visual tools. We will introduce the most common architectures, their qualities, and tradeoffs. We will talk about how architectures are evaluated, what makes a good architecture, and an architecture can be improved. We'll also talk about how the architecture touches on the process of software development.

TOP REVIEWS FROM SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE
I have learnt many concepts such as various diagrams.
Quality attributes and how to evaluate architecture.
It is outstanding course.
Very interesting course, although it'd be nice to spend more or longer lessons on some relevant and central topics (e.g., ATAM).
The concepts taught in this course helped me apply them in practice during the development of projects at work. Highly recommended!
Absolutly Fantastic Courses!! Well Designed. I got what I was looking for. Using Andoid as a way to pratices is also a very good idea. Thank you very all of you.
