Object Oriented Analysis and Design: Mastering UML
(BAOOAD, 5 days)


This SETC Certified System design course provides IT professionals with a good overview of the end to end roles and responsibilities of a software designer in the context of an application development project. The course begins with a discussion of the differences between a waterfall methodology and an iterative methodology as it applies to the systems design role. It is worth noting that the iterative methodology is emphasized and discussed in detail in this course. Having situated systems design within the larger context of the overarching methodology, a thorough discussion of business use cases, system use cases, UML and database design is undertaken. The focus is on the development of high quality functional requirements in support of a particular design activity. This is followed by an implementation workshop which allows participants to see how a given design can be implemented using the object oriented language of their choice. If time permits, the course concludes with an overview of design patterns and of their implementation in the chosen language.
