In this hands-on workshop we will cover the best approach to building enterprise applications using Clean Architecture and .NET 7. You will be building your own application from scratch.



The explosive growth of web frameworks and the demands of users have changed the approach to building enterprise applications. Many challenges exist and just getting started can be a daunting prospect. Let's change that now.

This hands-on workshop will provide practical guidance and recommendations. We will cover architecture, technologies, tools and frameworks. We will examine strategies for organizing your projects, folders and files. We will design a system that is simple to build and maintain - now and well into the future.

You will leave this hands-on workshop having developed the foundation and structure for your next enterprise application, along with the knowledge to take your enterprise application development to the next level.

Just completed an outstanding workshop on clean architecture with Luke Parker and Daniel Mackay from SSW. My team and I gained a ton of valuable insights! Their expertise and engaging approach truly simplified complex concepts for us. We're now excited to put our new knowledge into practice. Thanks, Luke Parker, Daniel Mackay, and the SSW team for this enriching experience! Highly recommended for anyone in the field.

Spent the last 2 days eating cookies, as well as learning more about clean architecture at SSW. To be honest I wasn't sure what to expect, as I think we do a pretty good job of Clean Architecture in our products. Both presenters did an amazing job and I am happy to say I walked away with quite a few learnings from the event. Now I just have a bit of homework to do on how I can apply them to improve our own products.
