A Realistic, Commercially Robust Process for the Development of Object-Oriented Software Systems
Length: full day
The successful use of object technology
requires far more than simply the adoption of UML, Java, CORBA or ActiveX. It is crucial
to understand the process of how to use these notations and technologies to build
commercially robust software systems. In this session the speaker draws on his experience
at NASA, NORTEL, AT&T, IBM, and other leading companies to illustrate the pitfalls and
best practices of the process of OO software development.
Attendees walk through the complete development
process from use case development to pattern application and coding, Participants gain a
clear understanding of the distinction between domain models, application models, and
architectures. The course goes beyond notation and cookbook methods to address the key
principles of Object-Oriented Software Development. A percentage of the time is spent
discussing the rationale underlying each step of the process so that attendees will leave
with an understanding of the fundamental software engineering concepts behind the specific
techniques presented. Several case studies are woven through the presentation.
Anyone involved in building software systems
including managers, analysts, designers, QA staff, and developers
Attendees will understand the phases, activities, and sequencing within a modern
iterative/incremental software development process.
This tutorial has been given at Object Expo, NY; the 2nd Israeli OO days, Tel Aviv;
COMDEX; Borland International Users' Conference; and on-site at various corporations. The
tutorial is continuously being updated and improved based on feedback.
