About the test

The Solution and Software Architecture online test assesses knowledge of software architecture and designing systems to satisfy business requirements.

The assessment includes work-sample tasks, such as:

  • Deciding between cloud and in-house servers.
  • Understanding the fundamentals of microservices.
  • Choosing optimal software architectural patterns.

A good solution and software architect needs to know how to make fundamental structural choices that are costly to change once implemented, and to have business requirements always on their minds.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
