Development of scalable profuction-grade information and communication systems

Data is displayed for academic year: 2023./2024.

Course Description

Students will become familiar with the processes and practices for developing scalable, production-grade information and communication systems. They will adopt the principles of designing and developing scalable, production-grade systems through examples and use the microservices development framework and the following technologies: Git, Docker, Spring, Java. They will be able to analyze the impact of different working conditions on the system and show how incident management and quality assurance of the system is achieved through monitoring, logging and troubleshooting. A real B2P (Business to Person) messaging platform built using the technologies and concepts presented will be analyzed as an example.
