In industrial practice, software developers are often confronted with already existing software systems that need to be maintained, reused or evolved. This requires specific skills to understand the design and implementation of an existing system and which parts need to be modified, to build software systems that are easier to maintain and to design systems with reuse and evolution in mind from the very start.
This course will study a variety of techniques, tools and methodologies to help building software systems that are easier to understand, maintain, reuse and evolve.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- reverse engineering
- test automation
- software product line thinking
- code smells
- measuring quality
After completing this course, student will be able to:
- Work as software developers in the context of an existing code base
- Know the best practices of software maintenance, including modern technical automation, management of technical debt, coding standards, refactoring, and design patterns
- Learn about software evolution
- Know how to produce and use reusable software
