Mein Kollege Stefan Toth hat im embarc-Blog persönliche Erfahrungen geteilt. Eine etwas ältere rund ums Scheitern (und Geschichten aus seiner Schulzeit sind stets ein Highlight), und weitere frische -- aus unseren iSAQB Remote-Seminaren die letzten Wochen. Denn mit Webcam an und Folien vorlesen ist es nicht getan ... der Ausgang ist aber glücklicher als bei seinem Referat.

iSAQB - The Standard in Software Architecture

The International Software Architecture Qualification Board brings together professional software architecture experts from industry, consulting, training, academia and other organisations.

The iSAQB is an international board (established as an association according to German law) with the following objectives:
- Creating and maintaining consistent syllabi and curricula for software architects (Certified Professional for Software Architecture)
- Defining certification examinations on the basis of CPSA curricula
- Ensuring the professional quality of teaching and initial and further training for software architects

The iSAQB defines training and examination rules and regulations but does not carry out any training or examinations itself, which it assigns to external (licensed) training and examination organisations. It also determines as well as monitors the relevant processes required.
