Overview

This accelerated Software Development Fundamentals course will provide you with a basic understanding of the software development lifecycle. As well as the decsisions that have to be made when selecting a software development methodology. You'll also develop an appreciation of how software developers need to work effectively in teams to produce software.

Your role as a software developer is to build and test high-quality code across front end, logic and database layers. Typically you will work as part of a larger team, responsible for some of the straightforward tasks and deliverables of the overall project. You will interpret design documentation and specifications. Customer requirements will typically be defined and agreed by more experienced or specialist members of the team, such as a business analyst or technical architect.

Upon completion of this course, you will have gained the knowledge and skills to fulfil the role of a Software Developer. These include carrying out the following:

  • Review requirements and specifications, and define test conditions. Design test cases and test scripts under your own direction, mapping back to pre-determined criteria, recording and reporting outcomes. Analyse and report test activities and results. Identify and report issues and risks associated with your work.
  • Design, code, test, correct, and document moderately complex programs and program modifications from supplied specifications, using agreed standards and tools. Conduct reviews of supplied specifications, with others when necessary.
  • Apply ergonomics tools and methods to develop users' tasks, interactions and interfaces to meet users' requirements.
  • Apply data analysis and data modelling techniques to establish, modify or maintain a data structure and its associated components.
  • Develop specialist knowledge of database concepts, object and data modelling techniques and design principles. Translate object and data models into appropriate database schemas within design constraints. Interpret installation standards to meet project needs and produce database components as required. Evaluate potential solutions, demonstrating, installing and commissioning selected products.
  • Produce software builds from software source code. Conduct tests as defined in an integration test specification, record the details of any failures, and carry out fault diagnosis relating to simple failures, reporting the results of the diagnosis in a clear and concise manner.

This is a vendor-neutral IT developer course, aimed at anyone who is involved in any aspect of systems development. Ideal for someone looking to develop foundation knowledge in Software Development.
