All prospective computing professionals need to understand the diverse and rich environment in which modern distributed computer-based applications and systems are developed. The development process is often complex, driven by continuous changes to the technology and business processes in which the systems are embedded. It involves a wide range of skills in analysis, design, programming, testing and implementation, as well as selection of appropriate tools, techniques and development products. This development process must comply with a governance framework derived from the enterprise and stakeholder concerns. It must be managed in the context of the systems life cycle to ensure quality, effectiveness and efficiency of both the process and the product. Additionally, the systems development process is a collaborative one involving multi-discipline teams of developers. This course addresses these issues, focusing on the process and management aspects of the building of systems using a critical evaluation and application of modern methodologies, techniques and tools.
