Subject specific learning outcomes and competences
Students will get acquainted with modern approaches to software development, having successfully completed the course, students will be able to take part in teams developing shared code, will know the tools helping the development of efficient and well-documented code as well as applications better reflecting the user's needs.
Generic learning outcomes and competences
Students will learn to work on projects. They will also improve their knowledge of modern development and documenting tools.
To understand the process of software development in teams and to get acquainted with real applications that help to create and documenting component-based projects, to learn how to easily prototype graphical user interfaces, what are preconditions of successful free software and usability measurement.
Why is the course taught
The course IVS was established as a preparatory course for student collaboration on research at the FIT. It provides students with insight into the entire process of SW development from planning, design, implementation and testing to final product deployment in the customer's company. The graduate will know what each stage of SW development involves and what tools are used in it, which will allow him/her to be better oriented when choosing his / her specialization and other elective courses. An essential part of the course is the preparation of students for teamwork on SW development and familiarization with version control systems, as these are basic knowledge and skills for developing any larger SW.
