Objectives

The goal of the Software Design Training Programme is to train the software designers of the future.

Make the construction of your software system effective and enjoyable

You will learn how to reduce the complexity of your software system each time a new feature is introduced and in this way to make the construction of your software effective and enjoyable.

Our philosophy

Our philosophy is to develop awareness about software design. There are no good or bad principles, patterns, practices or processes. The experienced designer knows how to choose between them according to context. The current complexity of the software system, the complexity of the new feature to be implemented, the degree of preparation of the team and even the level of tiredness of its members can lead to a different design choice.

Software design is essentially behavioural dynamics in action

Developing a software system means to grow a behavioral system. Introducing a new feature requires to know how to reduce the overall complexity of the system. Only in this way software growth can be sustainable. To do this, software designers need to learn how to deal with real working software systems. Possibly, complex, fast growing software systems.

Awareness is the key

Faced with real software systems, it is necessary to master solid conceptual tools: principles, patterns, practices and processes of software design. Every principle, pattern, practice and design process has its own motivations, advantages and disadvantages. When faced with a working behavioural system it is necessary to be aware of them and to know how to choose between them. How to choose the next step.
