Software Design & Development

We believe that everyone should learn how to design computer programs. This is because programming has become a required skill as important as basic literacy. The use of computers and computer programs has spread to all professions.

This course is taught in a series of assignments to be solved by you and will teach you how to progress from a problem description to a working solution. With each problem that you solve, you will learn new concepts, patterns, methods and experiences that will expand your programming and computer program design abilities.

Major Topics:

  • Steps of the design process
  • How to be clever and when not to be clever
  • Regular expressions and interpreters
  • Dealing with complexity
  • Managing complexity
  • Dealing with uncertainty
