Summary
The subject represents the introduction to the software development. It starts with techniques used in the process of software analysis and design based on object-oriented approach and the language UML.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The goal of the course is to show students what the development of large systems is about.
Students will learn how to apply and use approaches, languages and tools, will learn how to use UML language, maintain the tractability between each development steps etc. Students then will be able to use presented approaches for the development of software product.
