Announcement: First meeting of the IASA-RJ study groups

March 13, 2009

The first official meeting of the IASA-RJ study groups will be happening on Thursday, March 26 from 7 to 9 PM. The idea is to eventually be running (at least) three self-organizing study groups separately. But for this first meeting, and until we decide that we have enough interest for each, we will try to touch on all three topics:

  • A study of the ATAM methodology for evaluating software architectures
  • Study and preparation for The Open Group’s ITAC certification for IT Architects
  • Study of The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) and preparation for those that want certification

That’s a lot to cover in a single meeting, and a very ambitious undertaking for a single study group. In this first get-together I will be giving an overview of the ATAM, and Marcelo S├ívio will present the other two topics. Time permitting, we will then get down to business and discuss how we can organize the study group(s) and where to go from here.

If you’re interested in learning more about any of these topics, and happen to live in the Rio de Janeiro area, let me know. I’ll be happy to provide full information regarding the location of the meeting. Also, space is limited, so the sooner you let me know, the better. Lastly, if you are not yet a member of the IASA-RJ group, go to the Google Groups site and request permission to join, or send me your email and I’ll be happy to oblige.

Hope to see you soon!
