About modules

The primary goal of this course is to influence engineering culture and product development mindset in order to improve engineers’ performance and to provide better quality of delivery. This course aims to teach and promote best engineering practices, processes and tools. We'd like every engineer to be involved in the creation and development of ENGX culture.

Goals:
  • Mastering engineering productivity skills
  • Going through EngX Bootcamp
  • Implementing the acquired high-productivity skills in day-to-day engineering activities
Results:
  • Baseline for being a good software engineer
  • How to write maintainable code (with practical tasks)
  • Theory applied to production: on-the-job learning guided by an expert
  • Visualizing, analyzing, and designing software delivery process
  • Agile 360: a holistic approach to Agile

Solution Architecture (SA) is an educational program for employees pursuing a career in Solution Architecture. This module is aimed at delivering the state-of-the-art knowledge and skills necessary to become a Solution Architect. The module combines the main subjects of Solution Architecture, such as Quality Attributes, Architecture Modeling, Architecture Documentation and many more.

Goals:
  • Finding the best tech solution among all possible solutions for business problems
  • Describing the structure, characteristics, behavior, and other aspects of software to project stakeholders
  • Defining features, phases, and solution requirements
  • Providing specifications according to which the solution is defined, managed, and delivered
Results:
  • Get an understanding of Solution Architecture
  • Learn architecture practices
  • Train design skills
  • Develop a wide vision of architectural styles/patterns and technologies
  • Improve presentation and communication skills

Delivery Management — is the application of strong Engineering capabilities, Managerial best practices, Business knowledge, and Leadership competencies at exactly right ratio to ensure a success of engagements with clients. It includes organization, administration, and supervision of the people, processes, and technologies, which when combined into a comprehensive plan provide the business and technical functions needed to successfully achieve what a client expects to receive. The Delivery Manager role expands the standard PMI's Project Manager role with responsibilities to govern solutions, clients and teams.
