Construction of complex IT systems and management of complex IT projects.
|Detailed description of content||
Construction of complex IT systems and management of complex IT projects. This activity will be dominated by three pre-defined and connected subprojects that combine into a whole. Problems and challenges are related to issues covered in the three corresponding sections of the Complex IT systems – Theory course. The subprojects are defined by a set of specific requirements where the intention is to develop competence and skills in specific theoretical and practical areas. The goal is that the student, based on knowledge about relevant theory, will obtain skills to develop responsive applications in a distributed environment, and the approach is, by the three subprojects, to develop a modern complex and distributed web application.
|Course material and Reading list||
Syllabus will be available on Moodle.
|Overall plan and expected work effort||
The course will have a total workload of 412 hours.
The activity’s major teaching and learning activities are fleshed out • Minor workshops on specific practical problems • Status meetings with teachers to report on the process and get insight in requirements • On campus work supported by teaching assistants
|Evaluation and feedback||
Evaluation form to be filled out (anonymously) plus open discussion on the last course day.
The course will cover full-stack development of a lager complex IT-system. Starting with storage, where data model and data representation as well as functionality handled by the persistence layer should be created. Hereafter, the backend of the system must be designed and implemented supporting a frontend and using the storage layer. Finally, a frontend will be designed and created to provide a user interface to the system, based on the functionality provided by the backend.
|Overall learning outcomes||
After completing this activity, students will be able to:
