Hi All,

Many of you may know that at SKA we have adopted the SEI Views and Beyond approach for developing, documenting and evaluating software architectures. Adopting this approach has helped us understand the relationship between system qualities and the architectural design, and this further helps us focus on what is good architecture and what is and what isn't architecture.

Anyway, the reason for this was to point out that there is an SEI remote training course on 21-24 September for this which a new SKA Architect will be attending, and if anyone else is interested in doing the course it would be good to have people with common cause also attend it. If enough people are interested we could think about setting up a dedicated course (or get it held in a reasonable time-zone) but with the summer holidays it is unlikely that we will be able to do it sooner.

So, if you are interested, sign up and let me know
