In September last year I started the "Certified Architect" course held by Dataföreningen. This is by far the most extensive course I've attended since university. To get your certificate you have to complete 6 x 2 days of lectures and seminars spread over half a year with self studies in between. And finally you're required to write an IT-related paper (more on this in an upcoming post). The course finished last week so now I can call my self a "Certified Architect".
It took a lot of effort but it was definitely worth it. The thing I will remember most was all the interesting discussions with my 30 fellow architects. Overall it has been a great experience and I can really recommend it if you're interested in IT-Architecture!
