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.

Topic 1: Understand the software development lifecycle

Learners will understand that software development does not occur in isolation. Learners will gain an understanding of the stages in the lifecycle of software development and how these stages are likely to be performed by professionals in related disciplines. In particular learners will understand that core function of a software developer is to implement code to a given specification which will fulfil a set of functional requirements.

1.1 The role and scope of software development and its relationship to other associated disciplines

  • Describe the stages of developing software products through a development lifecycle:
  • Requirements gathering and analysis (separating functional and non-functional requirements)
  • Software design and prototyping including design trade-offs and diagramming
  • Choice of development languages and tools
  • Appropriate testing methodologies including validation and verification of meeting the requirements gathered
  • Deployment into production and ongoing maintenance
  • Describe the relationship of software development with other disciplines such as project management, programming, testing, service management, change and configuration management

Learners will understand why it is important for software to be implemented using a structured software development methodology and the benefits of following the chosen method. Learners will be able to discuss why these benefits are important to other professionals such as project managers, and to the sponsors of the software development project, and for those who will support the software once it is has been deployed.

1.2 Explain the importance of the following in a procedural (Linear) /staged (Iterative) software development lifecycle, e.g.:

  • Standardisation
  • Methodical approach
  • Analysis of each step
  • Collation of information
  • Ensuring correct design
  • Cost control
  • Robust evaluation to aid future development

Topic 2: Understand the similarities and differences between two software developments methodologies in common use in industry

In this topic, learners will learn to describe the advantages and disadvantages of at least two software development methodologies in common use in industry. In comparing these methods, learners will be able to explain when a particular method would be preferable for a specific software implementation projects, and what the consequences of choosing the wrong method might be. The learner will also be able to describe the different team roles and responsibilities of at least two methods.

2.1 Summarise software development methodologies, application, advantages and disadvantages.

  • Principles and rationale
  • Structure and stages
  • Advantages
  • Disadvantages
  • Selection criteria
  • Team roles and responsibilities

Learners will learn the specific differences between at least two common industry software development methodologies. Learners will learn that different methods related to wider business issues beyond the scope of software implementation such as the focus on working product (Agile) over completeness of process (Waterfall).

2.2 Compare and contrast software development methodologies

  • Differences e.g. :
  • Structure
  • Phases with completion of each phase prior to moving onto the next phase of the cycle
  • Agile: Ability to work with uncertainty and volatility and focus on working products
  • Comparison e.g.:
  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working products over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan
  • Agile recognises that while there is value in processes and tools, there is often more value in individuals and interactions

Topic 3: Understand how to respond appropriately to the business environment and business issues related to software development

Learners will understand that software development typically takes place in a wider business which places constraints upon the software development process. The learner will be able to explain the types of constraints that may typically arise, and how they can be mitigated.

3.1 Describe the business environment related to software development

  • Business environment pressures:
  • Are there any specific project requirements such as contractual constraints – time, cost, quality, compliance, regulatory, innovation criteria?
  • Are there configuration management and change control constraints?
  • Are there opportunities to promote alternative practices – Agile over waterfall, rapid prototyping, modularity over performance

Learners will learn how to describe the business issues related to software development and how to mitigate them. In particular, learners will understand the importance of engaging with project management as business owners of the software development project.

3.2 Understand how to respond to the business environment and business issues related to software development

  • Engagement with project management:
  • Understand how to identify potential risks and flag them
  • Understand how to identify where additional technical resource will be required
  • Support effective cost estimation
  • Accurately Forecast effort (time) required
