What's Inside

Session 1

  • History of software delivery methodologies
  • Methodology overview: Waterfall, V-model, FDD, RAD, Agile, SEMAT, Cynefin
  • Iterative vs incremental; Flow of value: product vs project
  • Requirement collection and analysis. Functional vs non-functional requirements. Specification by example.
  • Practical exercise: discuss the strengths and weakness of different methodologies

Session 2

  • System design and architecture visualizations (design language and notation overview, diagram types)
  • System design patterns and strategies: Coupling and cohesion; Data flow vs control flow; Up-front vs evolutionary; Top-down vs bottom-up
  • Design decomposition; Functional and business analysis
  • Practical exercise: draw a system design sketch with several components and data flows

Session 3

  • Overview of modern technical ecosystems: programming languages, runtime engines, frameworks, products
  • Overview of technologies dominating different layers of typical software system: frontend, backend, databases, integrations, mobile
  • Practical exercise: based on input parameters evaluate the risks involved in migrating from one platform to another
  • Introduction to common security principles in software systems

Session 4

  • Introduction to testing methodologies and quality assurance disciplines
  • Introduction to TDD and XP practices
  • Testing pyramid; Quality assurance strategies (testing, security, policies)
  • Testing types: unit, integration, system, functional, acceptance, end-to-end, performance
  • Practical exercise: select the QA model based on input parameters
  • Technical debt and maintainability metrics
  • Refactoring vs redesign planning
  • Introduction to static code analysis
  • Practical exercise: spot the problem based on given example of technical project data

Session 5

  • Introduction to Continuous Delivery
  • Introduction to DevOps
  • Notes on ITIL and ITSM
  • Infrastructure-as-code, immutable infrastructure, delivery pipelines, GitOps
  • Service-level metrics: SLAs and SLOs
  • Error budgets, mean time to recovery
  • Unplanned work management
  • Practical exercise: propose a solution based on input parameters
