You understand and can reason about core distributed computing principles and theory, and can recognise patterns and approaches taken by different technologies and tools in this space.

  • Pragmatic & Versatile Architecture Skills: You’re someone who is equally happy coding, whiteboarding and articulating approaches & solutions with clients, or leading a team.
