Object Oriented Analysis and Design Workshop

About this workshop

Object Oriented Software Analysis and Design is a 3-day, instructor-led practical workshop in Object-Oriented software analysis, design, and architecture.

The workshop teaches fundamental OO analysis, design, and architecture skills to software developers who have some experience programming in Object-Oriented programming language and who wish to gain a deeper experience of the software design process. The course extensively uses practical examples and hands-on exercises to maximise participants’ absorption of the subject matter.

This workshop builds a foundation for participants to further develop their OO analysis and design skills. It aims to provide practical, immediately applicable guidelines and heuristics for doing high-quality software design, to support the development of higher-quality, more robust, more flexible and maintainable software.

It does not introduce basic OO concepts and is unsuitable for software designers without exposure to OO basics.

Our starter course, Java and OO Foundation, is a 4-day course designed to provide such an introduction to OO basics and Java.

Object Oriented Software Analysis and Design introduces some software architecture concepts and processes but does not intend to give in-depth coverage of architectural concerns.

The course material uses the Unified Modelling Language (UML) as the typical “design language” but does not assume that participants have any prior knowledge of UML. No particular development or design methodology is promoted or imposed, although an iterative approach is recommended.

Instead, the course aims to teach the fundamental analysis and design skills common to all approaches to software design. The course is technology neutral and does not require nor use any specific OO programming language, and is thus valuable for any OO technology platform environment.

Workshop Goals

Object Oriented Software Analysis and Design were designed to teach participants:

  • purpose of analysis and design in the broader context of an iterative software development lifecycle
  • specific processes for developing analysis, design, and architecture models
  • heuristics for designing more robust, maintainable systems
  • strategies for ensuring that designs adequately address all systems requirements
  • understanding of core UML diagrams

Who will Benefit from this Course?

Software developers and designers who are familiar with object-oriented software development, and who wish to develop their skills in system analysis, design and architecture, are the primary audience for the course.
