  • Purpose and learning objectives

    The purpose of this core area is to develop students' competencies in making a qualified choice of and applying a given development environment.

    Knowledge

    The student will gain development-based knowledge and applied theory and methods:
    • in development environments
    • about the practice, methods, and systems for version control

    The student can understand and reflect on:
    • types and selection criteria for development platforms

    Skills

    The student will get the skills to:
    • master version control in a development context
    • use methods and tools for quality assurance in the development process, as well as evaluate and justify the choice of tools
    • use methods and tools within development environments to release web applications
    • communicate the choice of methodology and tools for use in the development process

    Competences

    The student will learn to:
    • methodically manage development platforms and development environments for any given task in complex development-orientated situations
    • administer development platforms and development environments in the development process of advanced web applications
    • independently engage in academic and interdisciplinary cooperation in a professional manner and assume responsibility within the framework of professional ethics in relation to development environments
    • identify and structure their own learning needs and develop their own skills and competencies in relation to web development.

  • Type of instruction
    The course is based on Problem-Based Learning. The students must apply their knowledge in developing an application project, where the student must also acquire new knowledge on their own to complete the development. The teacher will act as a supervisor in the development project, so the students are not left on their own.
