About the course

A software project is much more than programming. It comprises requirements management, design, testing, and maintenance. A professional product has stricter requirements than a garage hack. Every project follows a process, that describes who does what, and when, and which rules apply to ensure quality. This course is about this process, from start to finish.

A simple process is the waterfall model, where the process runs in one direction. More advanced processes are more complex: loops occur, or waterfalls besides and under each other. We look also in more detail at systems that have high safety and reliability requirements. Much in this course applies to other projects as well. The course focuses on software development processes and project management.
