About This Class

TOGAF 9.1 is THE industry standard of enterprise architecture frameworks. According to a 2014 Foote skill trends report, the average salary for individuals with TOGAF skills increased more than 10% in three months! This continues a multi-year trend for those with TOGAF skills, and they predict it to continue into the future. Clearly, developers and architects with TOGAF experience are in high demand.

You can get certified as an enterprise architect with the TOGAF 9.1 certification exam (OG0-091), and this course will teach you what you need to know!

It takes training to become an Enterprise Architect. Much of that comes through on-the-job skills learned working on software projects larger-and-larger in scope. But very definitely there is a very specific way to design software at enterprise scale.

The Open Group has defined a free and public standard for this method for almost 10 years now, and over 400 companies and government agencies have been involved in crafting that standard. It is called TOGAF - The Open Group Architecture Framework.

This course helps you become certified in the TOGAF 9.1 specification. Through learning the Architecture Development Method (ADM), you will become better at designing systems. If you already architect software for a living, learning an official enterprise architecture framework such as this takes you to the next level of your career.

If you are a software developer, this is your chance to learn the proper techniques for assessing the requirements of an enterprise, and designing the right solutions for today and tomorrow! While software development is skill any teenager can acquire, and the salaries paid to software developers fall or are frozen, it's those who know the complex skills of designing large software projects that will still be in high demand.

Specifically, this course will teach you:

  • The details of the TOGAF 9.1 Foundation exam (OG0-091), including how to book it, and my experiences taking the exam
  • The basic and core skills of the TOGAF framework
  • The Architecture Development Method (ADM), all of the phases, and the key information to know to pass the exam
  • Other topics covered on the exam, including Architecture Governance, Architecture Capacity, Enterprise Continuum, Capability Assessment and reference frameworks such as TRM and III-RM

This course is focused on passing the exam. In person classes for this same exam costs $2,000 and take 2 days of intensive training. This course aims to bridge the gap between that level of in-person training, and self-study.

If you've ever tried to read the TOGAF 9.1 specification, or even the official study guides for the exam, you will perhaps agree that they are lengthy and hard to understand. The TOGAF 9.1 spec is 654 pages long. The official study guide is 265 pages. Both are written in that same style that many official specifications are written in - both very precise and extremely lengthy.

Watching these lectures, doing the quiz questions, and following up with a reading of the relevant section of the specification will save hours off your self-study time, and will give you the confidence to take the exam and get certified at Level 1!

Join over 1000 students studying for the TOGAF 9.1 Level 1 certification test! Many have taken and passed the exam after taking this course! I am confident that this course will save you many, many hours of studying time compared with just reading the 650 page spec yourself. I will personally answer your questions about this material, either privately or in a group discussion, and will point out what you should be focusing on

I love making complex technical topics easy to understand.

This has been the basis of my entire career – as a developer, as a development manager, as a software architect – over the past 20 years. I spend half my time in the world of business, explaining complex technical topics to business owners and stakeholders so that they can understand and agree with my approach to solving their business problems with technical solutions. And the other half with developers, explaining the business reasons behind decisions and ensuring that any decisions made on the technical side don’t restrict the business in unexpected ways.

And I’m here on Skillshare to teach what I know in an approachable way. I started with TOGAF 9.1. That document is long and not written in a way that is easy to understand, but also have an interest in online marketing topics such as Google Analytics, domain names, sales funnels and conversion optimization.

Please don’t hesitate to drop me a message if you have a suggestion for a topic for one of my courses, or need help with something. I may not always be able to help you directly, but I would still love to talk to you.

Would love it if you would check out my free videos on Youtube to connect with me.
