Development of Software Applications
The course will prepare students for development of complex interactive applications, particularly database applications. The course will provide a knowledge for successful design, construction and implementation of application software. Students will be able to formulate the software requirements and to develop, implement and maintain quality software built upon different software architectures.
- differentiate and define project lifecycle
- reproduce adequate programming techniques
