Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight! My name is Matthew Renze, and I want to give you a quick overview of my course, Clean Architecture: Patterns, Practices, and Principles. It’s designed to help you learn how software experts keep their architecture clean using a modern approach to software architecture called Clean Architecture, and covers things like domain-centric architecture, application layers, CQRS (Command-Query Responsibility Separation), event sourcing, functional cohesion, bounded contexts, and more. In addition, you'll use these practices to replace the outdated three-layer database-centric architecture that has been used for decades. Most important though, you'll see how these practices, when combined, create an architecture that is simple, understandable, flexible, testable, and maintainable. When you’re done, you’ll have the skills necessary to understand and implement these clean architecture practices on your own software projects. As an introductory course, there are no prerequisites for this course. However, having basic experience with at least one C like programming language, and basic knowledge of software architecture will be beneficial. I look forward to working with you on Clean Architecture: Patterns, Practices, and Principles, here at Pluralsight.
