Team Topologies Distilled (3h)

Product code: TT23
Understand critical constraints to software-based delivery such as Conway’s Law, trust boundaries, or team cognitive load, and leverage them rather than unknowingly fighting against them.
Discover modern approaches to organize and evolve teams for fast flow, such as a team-first approach, aligning to true streams of change, and moving from blocking to non-blocking team dependencies.
Learn practical techniques (with supporting tools) that you can apply today for better team dynamics: Team API, Thinnest Viable Platform, Team Cognitive Load assessment, Independent Service Heuristics, and more.
We have bundled the "Platform as a Product" course with the academy flagship course "Team Topologies Distilled" into the Platform Engineering Bundle at a 15% discount.
