IMPORTANT - this course will move to semester 2 in the academic year 2021-2022. Please take this into account when planning your courses.
- Acquire a proper understanding, insight and skills in modern software development techniques, in particular Agile methods that are characterized by iterative and incremental development;
- Train collaborative team work in a relevant software development project;
- Be able to understand, recognize and apply design patterns to the problems that you encounter when using MDST to implement challenging new software products.
“MSDT” combines the theories of modern software development techniques and design patterns with the practices of team work in a software development project. This course teaches you how to become actively involved in a multi-disciplinary group of people that share a mutual goal: developing usable software products in an efficient manner. The course will:
- explain the necessity of software development models and their rationale;
- teach how to recognize the applicability of a number of common design patterns in actual problems, and how you should apply them;
- train how to use the agile software development framework using sprints.
- develop your competences in participating in a development team using state-of-the-art programming environments, software development techniques, issue tracking and source versioning systems
For AI students, participation in units of study of the B3 year is only possible after completion of the first year. For students enrolled in other programmes, participation in units of study of any year is only possible after: - completion of the first year of their degree programme. - Knowledge and skills related to object oriented programming at the level of Object Orientation (IP1005) and Programming for AI 1 and 2 (BKI131 and BKI132 or equivalent NWI-IPC031 Imperative Programming).
|An exam to assess the theoretical aspects of the course (60%). A large project, concluded with a technical report (40%). The project is assessed by the teachers and your peers (using peer reviewing).
Both the score of the theory part as well as the average score of the programming exercises should be >=5.5 to pass.|
