The course aims
Introduce students to different software architectures and ways to design applications. Teach students to work in project teams as well as different ways of cooperation within the team on application development projects.
As part of the course students will learn to recognize user requirements and categorize them according to execution priority. Recommendations will be considered in architecture and application design. Advantages of system use for storing code versions will be explained. Various types of application testing will be defined. Students will study characteristics of Scrum and MSF frameworks.
