Composite UI for Service Oriented Systems Overview


I’m currently travelling around in Germany and giving a whole day workshop about Composite UI for Service Oriented Systems. Part of that tour in Germany are also several Usergroup presentations each day in another city. So far I have visited Berlin, Leipzig and Dresden. The next station today is Braunschweig. After Braunschweig I will return back to Switzerland. I can only say it has been a blast so far! This blogpost is the overview and content linking blog post for a series of blogposts. I decided to divide the content of the Workshop into several blogpost because having all in one would be a massive one which nobody will have the motivation to read. In this handout I do not include the exercises we did during the Workshop. If you want the exercises too, then contact me and I’m more than happy to host the workshop at your event or in your company!


After this workshop you’ll be able to argument why it is important to decompose large systems and how the decomposition can be achieved. Furthermore this workshop will provide you with the necessary practices to reassemble the system together into a whole user experience by applying service composition techniques.

Let’s get started!
