Learning outcomes

The stakeholder forces of software development, such as reuse strategy, extendibility, understandability, maintainability, and support for construction, define the context for the decisions of software design. The course addresses to these forces and provides practical means to take them into account.


The course begins with introduction to modularity concept in modern object-oriented software development. This topic leads to design principles, patterns, and practices that enables us to implement commonalities and variabilities of requirements directly into the design. The most commonly used design patterns are studied in detail.
