Course content

The course gives knowledge and skills in agile application development in teams. The application will use a client server architecture, structured in modules and configured with a build system. The groups will use a system for issue tracking, source code management and code review. The focus is more on code quality and testing, than on functionality.

Learning outcome

* have knowledge about agile software development practices, and be able to explain techniques such as short development cycles, pair programming and test-driven development.
* have knowledge about object-oriented design principles, code qualities and tools and techniques for improving them
* have knowledge of techniques and frameworks for automatic testing of software
* have knowledge about issue tracking, source code management, continuous integration with automatic builds and their role in agile development.
* have knowledge of the software architecture of desktop and web clients using a REST API server and how it is visualized and documented

* can write user stories, turn them into tasks managed by an issue tracker and use a source code management system with branching and merging to follow them up.
* can design, write and test code for desktop client and REST API server, using modern tools for development and quality assessment
* can structure software as modules and configure a build system to handle running and testing all parts
* can document the software using lean formats and tools

General competencies
* can plan and coordinate small-scale development processes
* can reflect upon technical and organisational aspects of a software development
