Clean Architecture.

Practical, pragmatic, and realistic Clean Architecture certification training for Java developers building large-scale applications.


This training will guide you through the major architectural styles and patterns for backend systems, including Clean Architecture, Hexagonal Architecture, Layered Architecture, Vertical Slices Architecture, Domain-Driven Design, Modular Monoliths, and Microservices. By understanding every style and its trade-offs, you’ll learn how to combine them in your application while avoiding common pitfalls. Guided by real-world Java examples, you’ll learn how to:

Design clean and pragmatic architecture

Design clean services and domain model

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to mix and apply essential architectural styles – Clean-, Hexagonal-, Layered-, Onion-, Screaming-, and Vertical Slices- Architectures, Domain-Driven Design, Microservices, Monolith, and Modular Monoliths. You’ll develop a firm understanding of the underlying architectural principles and learn how to implement them in your Java applications incrementally, as necessary, without big rewrites.

I am amazed by the training content and Victor's teaching style. He is one of the best trainers I have met so far. His passion for clean code is something that you rarely see. Imagine a younger version of Uncle Bob teaching you the art of writing outstanding code - this is Victor performing during his workshops.

Every time exceeding our expectations. He is extraordinary flexible in his approach, very much involved, and with his enthusiasm, high level of expertise and "can do" attitude is able to move forward even the most resistant audience. He is role model for all junior developers, and a partner for senior developers, who are looking forward to have a second opinion in finding specific technical solutions for complex environments.

The course has everything I look for in training: valuable information, examples supported by real-life stories from Victor's broad experience, and interactive exercises (built from simple to more complicated). Victor has a talent for making complex concepts/patterns/frameworks look simple, giving you a solid foundation and confidence to delve deeper into the subjects.
